Heritage Album: Family Tree

Well, here it is, as promised…the beginning to my heritage album from my mother’s side. I decided to start off by including the family tree. The names have been blurred out for posting here – at the request of my family. I am almost done scanning in all the rest of our family photos from the first 3 generations so I can start on the rest of the album. Such an amazing group of people with incredible stories that need to be told.

Hope to be able to tackle my dad’s side of the family at some point. 🙂

A whole year in one book in just minutes each week!!

So, I’ve decided to create a yearbook for 2012. I know that many of the Heritage Maker families like to create one to record the main events of each year and how their kids have grown and changed from year to year. I don’t have a family, but I do feel like this is going to be a significant year for me.

What I love most about it is that, since I am using someone else’s template (with some minor changes to suit my style preferences) putting this book together is SUPER easy!! All it takes is minutes a week. At some time during the week-end (often on Sunday evening) I sit down to add any photos and captions that occurred in that particular week.

The hardest thing for me is to remember to take my camera and take pictures of the events I want to remember.

Thought I would share what I have so far .. up to the end of January as February isn’t done yet.

Hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think. 🙂
