Heritage Book




My Mom asked me to do another heritage book for her brother who is visiting next week.  Although I have little time to do the book, it has been a scrapbooker's dream to work with all these heritage photos from my family going back to the 1800's and know their names too.  Apparently my mother has a whole treasure trove of these items that I am just learning about and I had to give her the whole lecture about documenting all of this and the stories before it all dies with her, as I would have had no clue who most of these people are, except my own grandparents, maybe.  So now I know what my great and great great grandmother look like.  I have had people ask me to show the pages when they are completed, so here are the first seven.  I apologize for the quality, as I have one week left to finish before the book is turned over to my Uncle, however I have scanned all the photos and will be doing scrapbook pages for myself and will have more time to take photos for everyone to see.  As it is, I took these with my iPhone and forgot to clean the lens...........ooppss!  So at least you can get an idea of what I am doing and now I need to get back to work.

Kim, what a wonderful "find"! Learning about your ancestors is very exciting! You are blessed that your mother has all of this information. Be sure to take the time to document it all. It will be a blessing for generations to come! Lovely work!
