Genealogy Journal – Part I (Introduction & My Family)

Front page

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).

The cover
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.

Side view
I have my whole Genealogy on 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.
Front page
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.
