Do you wish your ancestors had left their legacy for you?
Now you can create your own and leave it for your descendants.


Susan Brody founded Family Legacies in the year 2000, based on an African saying, “When an elder dies, it’s as if an entire library has burned down”.  She is passionate about preserving these libraries of wisdom, knowledge, values, and hard-earned life lessons on film, so that younger generations will understand their roots and know they are a part of something larger than themselves.

A lifetime of achievement, if not properly recorded, is lost and forgotten after three generations – just 60 to 80 years.

Let us help you preserve and pass down your legacy, sowing the seeds for the future and enriching your own life with significance.

What an amazing legacy you have created for our family. I can't say enough about your overall approach to the project, your compassion with interviewing family members, your passion for this work and your incredible talent in creating family films. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤

I just wanted to let you know how much it means to me to have my life story video to pass down for generations. I watch it over and over and I can’t believe you made me look and sound so good. You are truly an artist.

Every aspect of working with you was a pleasure. You did and wonderful job preparing me so that I felt confident on the film date, and the video exceeded all of my expectations. My grandchildren want to watch it every time they come visits. Thank you for highlighting the first 85 years of my life so beautifully!

Dear Susan,
It's 12:30 A.M. and we just finished watching the Silver Family Historical Legacy Video. From the bottom of our hearts: Thank you, Thank you!!! It's the most wonderful film. We can't believe how much work you put into this and the entire film is AWESOME. Thank you for bringing our family history to life. I'm so happy to give this film to Marty for his 70th birthday...There couldn't have been a better gift. You had us laughing and crying and smiling. We are overwhelmed by the scope of the narrative. I know this is the best thing we have ever done. Thank you again!!!! XXXXX00000

Dear Susan,
The entire process of preparing for our family legacy film has been amazing in more ways than I ever imagined, from the pre-interviews you conducted with us in Aspen to the film day with our entire family in La Jolla. We will treasure not only the video but the entire experience of preparing and filming forever!
