I used my October Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit to make this simple and unembellished page about my Dad and his family in 1950 when he was about 3 years old:
I took these photos on my Sony Disc camera in 2002 by playing the old family movie and taking pictures of the television. You might say I was doing a bit of hybrid scrapbooking back in 2002 because I did that collage back then. I'm not totally happy with the margins on the old collage but I decided to use it anyway for this page. I'm also guessing at the date since my father, Robert Thomas Fenderson was born in August of 1947, he looks like he is about 3 in these photos.
I must say it is very satisfying to be getting pages done for my Century Scrapbook Album - it finally feels like I am making some progress into my family history and the organization of all of the records and photos. Even if the rest of it is not completely organized, it will be so wonderful to have one scrapbook album that encompasses a century of memories. I am hoping to have it finished before Thanksgiving so that I can share it with my family then.
If you are working on family history scrapbooking, please leave a comment with your tips or questions. I would love to hear from you.
Two Tips for Family Research:
1. The British Version of "Who Do You Think You Are" is now on YouTube! It is incredibly interesting.
2. You can find lots of bits in the Brown University Library - I found that High School Graduation programme from 1903 there.
