Video is a great way for researchers like us to share our research with our loved ones without boring them to tears. People enjoy a visual show and many times the video format forces us to scale the information down, which in turn makes it enjoyable for our loved ones.
And? It keeps them interested and may get them to start asking questions or sharing stories.
So I've compiled a list of 6 video/slideshow apps that can be used to make short videos on your smartphone or, in some cases, your tablet. A perfect idea to do before the holidays so if you get the chance you can take out your smartphone or tablet and share some stories in video format, and maybe, just maybe, you might get some information or stories shared with you. [Stranger things have happened.]
So. Do you use a different smartphone or tablet video maker app for sharing family history research? Share down in comments below what you love to use and why!

I do not own a smart phone or a tablet. Can I download these apps to my laptop?

Great question, Betty. iMovie is available for the Mac. ProShow Web & Animoto can be accessed & used on a Windows laptop/desktop or on a Mac.
