Scrapbooking Your Family History by Laura Best
Genealogist Laura Best follows up her well-received Genealogy for the First Time® with a colorful volume dedicated to techniques for preserving precious ancestral memories through scrapbooking. Use those vintage photos, uncovered documents, and newly-found family stories to create scrapbooked family trees and pedigree charts, eight generation treatments, depictions of holidays and family reunions through the years, and histories of family homesteads.
Inscribe notes on ancestors’ occupations and hobbies, anecdotes, celebrations, and sad moments: every memory worth passing on to children, grandchildren, and generations to come. The page designs all draw on color schemes and images common to various time periods, and there are also techniques for displaying the scrapbooked material in shadow boxes and frames. $9.95 at Amazon.
Scrapbooking Family in Historical Events, by Laura Best
Your ancestors worked, dreamed, cried, danced, laughed, raised families and experienced life in a variety of time periods throughout history. Some of the most valiant people are not mentioned in history books but are found in dusty journals and in the memories of grandparents.
These are the stories to preserve and celebrate. The gift of legacy and belonging can heal and strengthen families. Scrapbooking Family in Historical Events inspires one to search out his legacy and display the findings through scrapbooking. $27.95 at Amazon [hardcover]
