I have wanted to start publishing my family history research for a long time. I really like the idea of picture books but wanted to have more creative control than the big websites offer. I found this book and love it. The book walks you through how to organize your information, digitizing your documents and photos, and outlining your story. It also tells you how create your own scrapbook page by adding photos and text and using digital templates and embellishments. This book was easy to follow and get started on my own project. I have made several digital scrapbook pages and refer back to sections of the book as needed. I would recommend this book to any family historian who wants to tell their ancestor's story!
Short and to the point. I took a look at the preview before buying it. The part about doing a scrapbook on a person who you didnt have a lot of photo or information on grabbed my full attention. I am in that boat. I just had to have this book. So I purchased it and read it. Then I started to gather what little I had only to find out I had so much more then I thought I did. Now instad of a book with less then 6 pages that I had been putting off making for years, I am shooting for 20 to 40 pages. I do wish the part about getting clip art / digital papers had a list where I could download or buy some. But I can google it and find some. I love the part where she tells briefly how to make my own clip art.
The scrapbook approach will make it much easier to expand to a family history book later. The fear factor sets in when considering a full fledged book, but scrapbooking is fun. For me, this book was a good investment. I heartily recommend it.
I have been a genealogist for over thirty years and have been doing scrapbooks for over twenty. I have just started to work on some family heritage albums and have been procrastinating because there are so many choices. This book provided just enough information to help me focus and simplify the process. The author is very good at helping you narrow down by persons or topics and walks you through each step. Very quick how to do book. I would recommend it!
If you are a veteran digital scrapper you have the skills to bypass this book. If you are a beginner, it gives good information on how to compose a page.If you are wanting a book to help you determine what is important to include in a digital heritage book, there are good tips for selection and refining of selections to make a cost effective book.I personally wished there had been more technical information. Though I have created digital scrapbooks, I need more skills to do them justice.
This book has a lot to offer. It takes the reader step by step through the process of creating a heritage digital scrapbook. I appreciated the ideas of what to include and where to find more on family members.
Lots of information on collecting information and organizing it.
Good ideas. He uses digital where I used an old fashioned scrapbook. Either way is a good means of sharing family history. He's thorough in explanation
