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.

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.

Sorry I don't have any suggestions for your book, but I'm sure there will be some others coming along soon with some ideas for you. We'll be looking forward to seeing you around the forums and seeing some of your creations in the gallery. :)

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.
