In 2004 the GFA voted to create a video for the membership. The final product, in both VHS and DVD formats, will be mailed to you for the low price of $15.00 each for GFA members, and $25.00 for non-GFA members. You may purchase multiple copies for your family members.

Note well: this $15.00 offer is being made only to members whose membership dues are current for 2006. If your dues are not up to date, please send $15.00 dues along with your order for the video. If you do not wish GFA membership, please send a check for $25.00.

The video is 33 minutes in length, and it details the first four generations of Matthew Greenell's descendants. The video is professionally narrated. There are fourteen "Grinnells" whose histories are detailed because of the extraordinary nature of their lives or their importance in our family tree. The video contains photographs of many of these persons (photography began in the 19th century). There are lists of Grinnells in the US Congress, mammals and birds named by Joseph Grinnell (latin names with grinnelli appended), and geological features discovered and named by George Bird Grinnell. The video is alive with sounds of birds, railroads, ocean sounds for the many whaling merchants and boat captains, and music for the Grinnell Brothers Music House. You are probably aware that many of us belong to the Mayflower Society because of the marriage of 3rd generation Daniel to the granddaughter of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins. The Mayflower and list of passengers is included. There is so much more.

Your copy of the video can be augmented by adding movies, photos and videos of your immediate family members to make this a more personalized living history of the Grinnells. To order, please complete this downloadable form (PDF format) found at this link and mail with your check for $15.00 ($25.00 for non-members) to "GFA" to: Marj Murray, 6790 Braun, Center Line, MI 48015.
