Why should I share my story?

A ShareYourY  legacy is more than a video, it is rich living sensory story.  It is told from your unique sights, vocal expressions and familiar gestures.  It is a voyage of self-discovery which will connect individuals and generations.  A powerful gift in which you document your familys history in a format that will meet future generations.  It is a chance to allow your family and friends to travel through your life.  They will discover your history, your loves and your faith, the essence of who you are.  Your journey will enlighten them to your timeless insights, and this will surely guide them on their future paths. Give a gift that will ripple through the many generations.

Why couldn’t I do the same thing myself?

A ShareYourY Legacy video is  professionally produced,  as our team of experienced producers and editors facilitate the transformative gift of your story into an eternal treasure.

What questions do you ask?

We have a list of over 100 questions that we start with.  When the questions are asked there are many follow-up questions based solely on a persons answers.  Please let us know if there are certain questions you would like asked, talking points we should focus on, or even sensitive areas we should avoid.

How do I get ready?

Gather as many old photographs as you can that will help tell your story.  Don’t be concerned about their condition, we can work them.  If you feel comfortable you can write down memories that we can explore like your childhood, parents, grandparents, children, school days, working life, interests, experiences, lessons learned, and faith.

What should I wear for my interview?

Formal attire is not expected in the interview, dress in clothes that you feel most comfortable in.  We want the real you!  Please avoid all white tops, plaids, stripes, or checkered patterns these create a distracting moiré on-screen.

How long does a project take?

It all depends on the complexity of the legacy project.  Most often a fully edited Legacy video with 40 photos typically takes 4-8 weeks.  A Tribute Video, depending on the number of people to be interviewed, could take up to 10 weeks,  a Keepsake Video, 2-6 weeks, a Memorial page  1-2 weeks.

There might be skeletons in the closet. How do you handle them during an interview?

Skeletons are in every family closet.  While some dont mind them being part of family, others do.  We will simply edit out any information you would like to keep private.  We work for you.

What is a QR code?

In 1994, DENSO WAVE announced the release of its QR Code.  The QR in the name stands for quick response, expressing the development concept for the code, whose focus was placed on high-speed reading.

Is the placing of a QR code on a headstone new?

No, in 2008 Japan began to sell tombstones with QR codes. Other companies, such as Wisconsin-based Interactive Headstones, have also begun implementing QR codes into tombstones. In 2014, the Jewish Cemetery of La Paz in Uruguay began implementing QR codes for tombstones.

What makes the ShareYourY QR code so different?

Our ShareYourY code is a Dynamic Code, is very flexible and is virtually indestructible.  We can track the number of scans, including when and where they were scanned.  Our Dynamic QR Code is cleaner and smaller as compared to a static QR Code.  Its scannability will be more constant to the user.
