Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento Meeting
When: Monday, May 15, 7 p.m.
Where: Albert Einstein Residence Center
1935 Wright Street
Topic: Creating Family Video Documentaries
Les Finke, executive director of the Albert Einstein
Residence Center, has spent more than 20 years
creating award-winning video histories and family
documentaries through his "Video Echoes" production
company. He will share with us some of his techniques
assembling personal memories and reflections in
videotape productions. His videos incorporate family
pictures, home movies, memorabilia and music.
In most cases, he prepares the videos to celebrate
individuals while they are alive. "I allow the person
or family to enjoy a touch of star treatment and a
chance to be famous -- if only in their living room."
Les has enhanced the lives of low-income elderly in
Sacramento and has also given of his time and talents
to Survivor of the Shoah Foundation.
Come enjoy Les' presentation to us on Monday evening,
May 15, 7 p.m. All are welcome to attend the meeting
at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright
