Create a Holiday Heirloom Gift
PHOTO CENTER PHO O
Family heritage photo books are a meaning;ul, a;ordable holiday gi; to preserve and
honor your ;amily’s history. The best ;amily heritage books have a narrative thread
combining all the people, places and stories together. As an example, you can create
one to honor your maternal grandmother and grand;ather and all o; their descendants.
Here are ;ive tips to help inspire your creation:
; Gather photos ;rom your ;amily. Ask ;amily members to scan, email or mail their best
photos to you. Ideally, collect childhood photos o; Grandma and her ;amily as well as various
special moments up through the present day.
; Tell some great stories—–both widely known and newly discovered. Conduct
interviews about Grandma and Grandpa with various ;amily members. Does anyone have a ;unny
story to share? How did Grandma and Grandpa meet? What was their courtship like?
; Add documents and notes. Various ancestry websites now have birth certi;icates,
marriage licenses and other public records that you can collect. Also, handwritten notes and
letters can be scanned in to add a personal touch.
; Make a pictorial ;amily tree. You don’t need to design a ;ancy graphic. Use the easy
design capabilities o; the Custom Path builder to art;ully arrange photos and captions to illustrate
the ;amily lineage.
; Give one to everyone in the ;amily. Order multiple copies. The e;ort you put into Grandma’s
book is now a priceless heirloom that you can send to each ;amily member to enjoy ;or years to come.
