Family History Course Series
Edit Heritage Photos, Make a Family History Album, + Poster!
"Ancestors are so cool!"
That's a direct quote, from someone I was working with to get their own family history started in FamilySearch.com. And that pretty much sums up how I feel about my new class series! In this special bundle of online courses, you'll travel back through your family history, restore old photos, and create a gorgeous album and poster to share and show off your beautiful work!
Our Goal: Find Out Where You Came From!
Join hundreds of other students from around the world as we explore the richness of our own heritage, and come to a deeper appreciation of the lives and stories of those who have come before us. Combining the Family Tree Poster, This Old Photo and Family History Album Class, The Family History Series is a great place to discover, document, and display your family history!
What To Expect from the Classes
These three classes have all the digital supplies and video instructions where I'll walk you step-by-step through the page layouts, photo edits and more. You'll be amazed at how much you can do with the techniques I teach, including how to:
Learn to research your history as you gather names and data for your poster and album
Create a beautiful photo poster to showcase your family tree
Journey through three generations of your family history with me as we create a gorgeous scrapbook album
Restore your precious vintage photos, for the poster, the album, gifts, decor, memory keeping, and more!
Purchasing the whole series gives you a great discount that gives you the poster class for FREE. Register today!
How To Prepare for Class
For these particular projects, it will pay to get ready early. Here's what you'll want to begin gathering. I'll provide you with guidance on finding vital information as well as (possibly!) photos or news articles as part of class:
- One Formal Photo for each set of ancestors: your parents, your grandparents, and your great-grandparents. These will be the section headers, and this will be the main photo in that page.
- 2-7 additional photos of each of the above, and/or stories you'd like to include in the album. We're keeping the number of photos low, so we can, as they say, "git 'er done" and off the computer and into the hands of your loved ones!
- Birth, marriage, and death dates and places for each of the above, plus additional facts such as places they lived or traveled, number of children, personalities, etc. If you're low on photos, the more of this vital information you can find, the better!
I'll Be Right There With You
This whole family history series is going to change your life. At the end of class, you'll have a deeper appreciation for the lives and circumstances of "Your Three Generations" than you had, and a gorgeous album to share that knowledge with your own family. These are YOUR people. Your tribe, that lived and struggled and fought succeeded, maybe farmed or worked a mine or in a city, who laughed and cried, met a partner and had a child, and the whole process started over, until you. They belong to you. And that belonging, to a rich and continuing story, is what I want to share with you. Register now, and I'll see you in class!
