In 2004, I created a family history DVD for a big Lange Reunion up in Northern Minnesota, near the head waters of the Mississippi River. It was a three day event and I really enjoyed seeing some of my older cousins, nieces and nephews.
Since then I have created several more DVD's for both my paternal and maternal family, including an award winning DVD to go along with the Lange Book 2005. In 2008 I completed the DeNoble DVD for my family and cousins.
The DVD in the middle is from a Regular-8 film that was from 1958 that I found in the basement of my mother-in-law's home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I had this film transferred to DVD, then into Final Cut Pro HD where I edited the film and added sound.
Folks, if you are going to take the time to make a family history DVD, please use quality DVD's that will last many years. The best DVD's are Ridata and Taiyo Yuden from Japan. Also you should consider printing directly on to DVD rather than trying to make a label and paste it on your DVD. If you are not familiar with these two DVD manufactures, go to Google and type in these names.
