This June, I will participate in The Longest Day®, a fundraising event benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association. On June 21, people around the world will do what they love to honor a caregiver, a person living with the disease or someone they’ve lost, while raising funds and awareness to advance Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
It has been a long time since I have pulled out the records to review. An unexpected meeting of two ladies at McDonald’s who needed a calendar, got me rejuvenated about my Patriot Ancestor.
I have been invited to a meeting on October 3rd, I am very excited,. The President of the Stephen’s Chapter will review my documents for authenticity and approval. I had been given paperwork in 1996 from my grandmother’s cousin, Dorothy Parry, who had done most of the research! Wish me luck!
My fourth Great-Grandfather fought in the Revolutionary War. I found his headstone while wandering through southwest Pennsylvania with my mom on a genealogy quest. It was a successful hunt!
REFLECTIONS OF CHILDHOOD CHRISTMAS
MAKE YOUR OWN SCRAP PAGES AT HERITAGE MAKERS
Digital scrapbooking is really the way of the future. No more cutting, pasting, sticking slicing and choosing the right paper. This is all digital, and you can MAKE IT YOUR OWN. I have been working on a scrapbook for my dad the last couple of months. He is having memory issues, and I wanted to make something he could look at and maybe recount some good times throughout his life. I did a chronological story and added photos to go along with them. Different phases from childhood to marriage, military and good friends.
I have begun working as an Independent Publishing Consultant with Heritage Makers. You can make so many wonderful projects. Here are two pics of his album and a link to look a the rest of it. I hope he likes it.
If you are interested in making a similar project, or a story book such as I made my mom, please contact me. I can show you how with Heritage Makers. It is an easy system, no software to download. You simply go to their website, upload photos, store them in albums and ” Drag and Drop” them into a project. Add some embellishments and your own words, and that is it!!
