Making family albums

I have 12,771 family pictures in LR. All are catalogued by name, date, location, etc. I want to burn them to DVDs for children , grandchildren, and great-grandchildren with software that would give them search and access like LR. It would be the world's greatest family album! What kind of software would do that?

Searching means they have some kind of limited version of the desktop app included on the DVD. As I recall, I could do that with Extensis Portfolio when they had a standalone version, but most of the DAMs, including them, have gone to a cloud-based service. However, that's one place you could start looking.

With DVD burning software, you can often include both a slideshow (who doesn't like a family slideshow?) and a folder of individual images, but I don't know about searching. Another source to look into, though, and of course, I'd have another reason to use LR if it came up with a solution.<G> But both burning software and slideshow software might have something???

If you find something, do report back. I could use a tool like that myself.
