We scrapbookers are well-acquainted with recording history as it happens. But what about our past?
In the last six months I’ve met members of my dad’s family for the first time. That’s a long story best saved for another time. However, it led me to do genealogy research, also for the first time. With a lot of help from a friend who’s a seasoned genealogist, I found this photo of my great-grandparents.
This summer I am starting a group for people who want to research their family history and also scrapbook it. Together we’ll learn methods of tracing our ancestors and techniques for preserving the photos and information we turn up. Anyone can join — if you’re a scrapbooker who’s never done genealogy or if you know a family history buff who doesn’t scrapbook, bring her! If you’re interested, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll work out a meeting time and place.
