JEECS members and other readers of this website are clearly interested in family history, which is why we thought you might be interested in a service offered by a company that specialises in making films about your family history.

Paul Hurley, owner of www.myfamilyhistoryfilm.com, says it is a bit like having your own version of the TV show Who Do You Think You Are?.

He writes: “I wondered if any of the members of the JEECS' network might be interested in having a chat with one of our team to see if they would like a film about their specific family background or to find out more about how we work.

“We make these projects for clients worldwide – using professional local crews as well as our team at base here in England. You can find out a lot more about how the service works on our website.”

If you are interested, you can log in to the website as shown above or contact Paul Hurley at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

NB. This venture is in no way formally endorsed by JEECS. It sounds interesting, which is why we have put these few lines on the website, but that is not to be taken as a recommendation. If you are interested and contact the company, however, please use 'JEECS' as the referral code when inquiring on the sign-up form or via email since we will receive a commsission payment for any purchase that names us.
