    My Family History Challenge

    I decided it was time for a family history challenge. This will be ongoing from month to month, so all of us have the opportunity to create a family history album. I have been wanting to do this, but never seem to have the time to finish an album. All that is required is to submit a family history layout, once per month until your album is complete. Try to use as much journaling as possible, as this tells the story of our ancestors. I know that for some photos we may only have dates, and that is okay. This will still be an important page in our album. You may also have layouts that just have journaling and no photos. If you have a lot of information, make a 2 page layout and use a matching kit, or Scrapbook Max's wonderful color tool. When the album is complete you may want to send it to a printer to have a book made.

    This may be a great time to sit down with any living relatives and interview them. They will provide you with stories that you will cherish. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's layouts! Have fun researching!!

    Here is one layout to get us started, a photo of my dad when he was a baby.

    November is here! At this time of year we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the United States. Post a layout about who or what you are thankful for. Feel free to share more than one layout if you have time.
