Hi everyone,
I am not new to scrapbooking but still on the learning curve for digital scrapbooking (but I have put together a few pages and had so much fun doing them). My user name is ShadowsGurl (my DH's nickname). I am a Mom to two beautiful teenage girls, one off to college this fall, and so have many years/memories to scrapbook.

I am also interested in putting together a book with all the photos I have collected over the last twenty years while researching my family tree (over 1300 people). So I am definitely interested in any suggestions you have.

Teresa

Hi Teresa! :waving-hi: Welcome to Scrap Girls.
1300 people? Wow! Do you have details for each person? I've never done a heritage album. I'm sure some gals will come along with some suggestions.

Welcome. I see you will keep very busy catching up on all your photos. That's a pretty impressive family tree. There are people who do a lot of what we call heritage scrapping. Check out the gallery & keep an eye on the calendar - there is a chat every month on this topic.

Wow, that's a large family tree. My only suggestion is to start with those you know the best and work your way out.

Hi, Teresa.... Welcome to Scrap Girls! I am working on a much smaller heritage album, and I am learning, too. I have a lot of scans and am working on getting them in order. I am also trying to get the stories from the elder members of the family. Putting it all together and making a large photo book that we can order multiple copies of is my goal before the next family reunion.
