Many people start scrapbooking because they have many heritage photos that they want to preserve. The problem is that preserving and recording ones ancestors can be a daunting task. Becky Higgins’s new book, Family History Scrapbooking, will help simplify the process and put you on the right path for preserving your family’s history.
The book is divided into 6 chapters, each focusing on a different step in the family history scrapbooking process.
All of the information is presented as answers to questions. A question is at the top of most pages and then Becky writes her answer to the question. This was a very effective way to present the information because people really do have so many questions about preserving family history and here are all of the questions and answers in one organized book.
One of my favorite parts of the book is the checklists. Many checklists are included throughout the book that give you tips and ideas of things that you can do or look for when working on your family history. Some of the checklist topics are: interview questions, organizing photographs and memorabilia, tips for identifying people and list of helpful online links.
Becky also shares some fun idea on how to incorporate these historical pictures into the décor of your home.
In addition to being filled with very useful ideas and information, Becky has filled this book with many of her own family history layouts. So, not only are you getting an informational resource, you are getting a great idea book too.
As an online bonus, you can check out a few of the layouts that are featured in the book by clicking here. Looking at this will familiarize you with Becky’s clean and simple design style if you are not already familiar with it.
If you have been thinking about preserving your family history, but you are not sure where to start, I recommend picking up a copy of Family History Scrapbooking.
