Saturday's Family History Scrapbooking Stars - 26 November 2011

Lost cousins unite thanks to Holocaust database and a family photo. Yad Vashem has a truly amazing collection of stories, testimonies, papers, resources and photos. One photo led to a reunion of the children of brothers, both Holocaust survivors, in Jerusalem. If you have ever questioned the time it takes to make your  photos and scrapbooks available to subsequent generations, you will never wonder again.

Scrapbook a Funeral Card: Leslie Ann at Ancestors Live Here didn't call  it that, but that is what she did beautifully in her  Funeral Card Friday post.

Memory Books Keep Families' Stories Alive article in RapidCityJournal.com: Mary Copco, director of the Adams Museum & House, Inc., tells us "I think people get intimidated because they think, "I'm not organized enough" or "I'm not going to do it right." That's why I tell them to just do it."
