Genealogy Journal – Part I (Introduction & My Family)
December 18, 2015
Hi readers. I hope you all are well. I am really really excited about this post. I have been working on my Genealogy journal for a very long time now and I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys. Genealogy is a subject which one can never complete. So if I waited to finish it, it would really take a lifetime. I still have to take out time and add my new family into it (My husband, his parents and his siblings).
I had bought this scrapbook in 2007 from Paperchase in Seattle during a sale and never really decided what exactly I should do with it. Last year, I was excited with the idea of making a Genealogy journal in this, as this was the perfect size. I could still not fit in all my ancestors in it but its the best that I could do on paper.
I have my whole Genealogy on ancestry.co.uk website which has the details of my every known relative. It is very difficult to have your whole family tree on paper but the least I could do was try to fit some of them in.
I have finally finished taking pictures of it and I am going to start sharing it now. If you have read my Genealogy blog posts on my blog, then you would enjoy this journal more. (Link: Here is the link) I will start sharing it with you in parts as you may not get the time to see it all at once. So, here are the first few pages of it.
