blog Here is a genealogy photo book we put together and gave to our children

Three Kings day is over, the end of the ‘Holiday Season’. The lights are down, the decorations are put away, the presents and paper and ribbons and cards will be put away by the weeks end. What now?
Don’t put those cards away! My cousin sent me a great idea for those cards, making a book out of them! Then they are all in one place and what in the world does this have to do with genealogy!?!

Think about the cards published 80 years ago, 50 years ago, even 30 years ago. How have they changed? Who sent them to you? What family letters or notes were put inside of them? What photos were sent to you-or-was the card a family photo or their family vacation? The current trend has been to send Year in Review letters.  Letters full of family information. Information that is now history, albeit, recent history, but a year or two or 10 will pass and it will be old history. Maybe you are not too excited about the letters with photos, or photocards right now, but your descendents will be so grateful to you for saving these for them to view. Be sure to put names on the photos if there aren’t any on them!

Let’s look at this Holiday Book as a great way to keep current family history organized and stored and easy to access in the future.

If you get invitations for Weddings, Baby Announcements, Every Day letters, Obituary’s and such, perhaps more could be had. You could use the school type pocket folders if you don’t want to get decorative with your holders.
