Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Family history memorabilia is a good source of material for creative scrapbooking. Digitized photographs can be cropped, glued, and combined with ephemera and photocopied documents to make interesting memory book pages with no fear of damage to the originals. Geneologist Best suggests various ways for laying out pages that deal with events ranging from family holidays to day-to-day activities. These pages, however, do not feature much informational text, so they would better serve as illustrative material to more formal family histories. Unlike Bev Kirschner Braun's Crafting Your Own Heritage Album or Best's own Genealogy for the First Time, this book does not cover the techniques of genealogical research to any extent. Public libraries needing supplementary books on family history scrapbooking will find this a fine addition. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
