Global Family Reunion

In conducting some research today I found a very interesting reference to my great-great-grandfather, Henri de Büren in the March 19th, 1870 edition of the Feuille d'avis de Neuchâtel . His name is associated with an ad annou...

Having a distinctive coat of arms is great for many reasons, none more so than adding a level of certainty when chasing visual references to your family history. In chasing a lead last evening I found another such reference. Unlike a lion, or a geometric sh...

Director Paul Trillo blends ingenious special effects with a poetic tale of boy-meets-girl in this philosophically minded short, which was inspired by the work of physicist Brian Greene and cognitive-science scholar Douglas Hofstadter. To learn more about how Trillo made this film, read his interview with Filmmaker Magazine.

My cousin looked at me with a small grin, eyes smiling as he handed me a reused jam jar. I saw six small misshapen orbs through the glass. I opened the jar

When we look more closely, we are rewarded with greater insight. Last week I found a 19th century photo of the Château de Vaumarcus , the de Büren family home for many generations, and decided to make a high resolution scan for this blog. It seemed at first...

Dear Mr. De Buren,
The "Scenes of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil shot during my grandparents' 1960 trip to South America" are fantastic, thank you for sharing them.

My name is Fernanda Torres, I am a researcher in Multirio - Municipal Company of Midias,  linked to Rio de Janeiro's Secretary of Education, that develops educational material (publications and Tv programs) for the public schools of Rio de Janeiro.

At the moment we are elaborating a series of 5 programs in order to commemorate Rio's 450 years. One of the programs is about its IV Centenary (1965) and I am searching for images of the city in the 60s. So I would like to know if it would be possible to reproduce a piece of this film in Multirio's program.
I thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Fernanda Torres
