I am grateful that my parents diligently recorded our childhood in many ways.
Dad’s original movies were converted to VHS, with audio added by the video service. I then had the series digitized for DVD. Here are three brief montages from my babyhood, which include vacations, family and general fun.

Below are recordings my mother made annually, using a Wollensak reel-to-reel tape recorder.
They begin with my babyhood, and end when I turned sixteen. I converted the recordings into movies, adding photos.

Dad was a brilliant storyteller. Yesteryear came to life in his animated narratives.
Here is a video compilation of cherished, hilarious family stories, filmed in the late 1990s. The first chapters were taken at Aunt Maryann’s house, and the others at Aunt Marietta’s and then our townhouse.
