Family History Scrapbooking Ideas for Scrapbook Sunday 8 January 2012

Welcome to 2012! It's time to start thinking about scrapbooking your family history. Whether you are a digital or paper scrapper, you can participate in this weekly blogging theme. If you create a project to display your family history or genealogy, publish it in a blog post with Scrapbook Sunday in the title. This is an open group.

The last few weeks leading up to the holidays were free weeks. Let's see what the Virtual GeneaScrappers have been doing:
  • Jackie Baker of Jackie's Genealogical Journey gave a shout out to our Virtual GeneaScrappers' group on her blog, Jackie's Genealogical Journey, Thanks, Jackie!
  • Jennifer Alford of Jen-Gen's Family History interviewed her Dad about his memories. Her Dad surprised her with his own questions and answers later. His questions were thought provoking and you may want to add them to your own family history interview repertoire. According to Jennifer, sharing your stories can bring your family closer.
  • Stephanie Fishman of Corn and Cotton did some blog scrapbooking when she participated in the GeneaBloggers Advent Calender of Christmas Memories series. She shared photos and memories in letters to her daughter.
  • Valerie Elkins of Family Cherished gave us Tips to TellingYour Story So People Will Listen. Telling the story is just as important as the pictures that will accompany it.
  • Jenna Mills of Desperately Seeking Surnames motivated me to redecorate my blog. Check out her new blog header and this beautiful digital Christmas collage
  • Yvonne Garrett of The Adventures of Garrett Squared and the newest member of the Virtual GeneaScrappers, has been working hard on her Family History Album and has added her creative flair to the  project.
There are many more unsung family history scrapbookers out there. If you would like to have your blog included in our Virtual GeneaScrappers group, leave a comment below. We can learn so much from each other and provide motivation and inspiration as well. 

For 2012, I will be offering you several choices each week. Participate as often or as infrequently as desired using one of the supplied prompts or one of your own design.

Scrapbook Sunday 8 January 2012 Prompts:
1. Scrapbooking Family History Album - Week 4: Spend some time on the Day 7 assignment for Interviewing and Remembering. Create a post about how thinking a little more deeply about your ancestors' lives can assist you with telling their stories.
2. New Year Scrapbook Page: Create a page or pages about how you spent New Year's Eve in 2011 or how your family has spent New Year's Eves in the past.
3. New Year Genealogy Goal: Do you have particular family or individual you plan to research in 2012? Create a page with what you know and what you would like to discover.

Hope this blog post has given you enough family history scrapbooking ideas to get you motivated. Let me know how it goes for you!

Happy Wednesday!

Scrappy Gen
Let's Remember!
