Simple Family Scrapbooking Ideas


You can easily start your family scrapbook with a family tree.

A family tree should include both sides of your mother and father's family. It can start with the youngest generation and go back as far as you and family members are able to remember, or from the oldest generation that you can remember to the youngest. It all depends on how you want it.

While reviewing your family tree, you will see that family themes will begin to emerge. Some will be obvious such as college affiliations or military, careers etc.

Others might take a little more creativity such as an album of recipes handed down from generation to generation, family traditions etc.

Holiday periods are times when traditions are held closely, and sentiment is dear.
