New business

Remembrance: A Family Legacy is a new business that can document your family for future generations.

It's creator is pychologist Allen Johnson of Richland. The service provides a 60- to 90-minute video and still photography-based documentary on family genealogy.

The cost varies in price, starting at about $500. Johnson interviews family members, takes photos and videos documenting the family's history. He then compiles the information on a DVD so that future generations will know their great, great, grandparents by watching them on screen.
