I deeply enjoy doing genealogical and historical research and I believe that information is for sharing. It turns out, though, that not everyone is happy to read pages and pages of facts. How then do we  get our family stories across in a way that is easily accessible?
I've come to realize that sharing the family tree needs to be in some format other than a binder (electronic or paper). That isn't because there isn't value in a binder full of information but it's unlikely that any anyone will (a) pick it up from the bookshelf, or (b) read it. Why should they, really? It's a bunch of pages about people they never knew. And that's the crux of the matter. I want the next generations to get to know those who came before them.
When I sat down to think about how I share the information. I thought about the binders I have in my own collection that, while I treasure I rarely look at. That got me thinking about other ways I might display our history. It turns out that I've already done a few different things. My future blogs are going to describe my projects, and I'll be sure to include inspirations and ideas from others, too. There are so many ways to create family memories and heirlooms! Look for the Memories in Food cookbook I made for Mom last Christmas and the Nankivell Coat of Arms commissioned metal sculpture in the next couple of weeks.
Thank you for stopping by my site and spending some time with me!
