This beautiful edition will inspire you to turn your old family portraits into a captivating and treasured keepsake that generations to come can adore. Starting with practical tips, such as the photocopying of family photographs, Best details each of the aspects you can embellish to make your ancestor's lives come to life on the page, such as fashion, emigration, holidays, weddings, birthdays, folk lore and traditions, sad stories, hobbies, household duties, leisure activities, occupations and homes. Best also encourages you to include the chronology right up to yourself and your children, allowing the document to become a living record.
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.
Scrapbooking can be more than just a craft: it can become a window into important family history. 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.
