Dig into Genealogy 101

Have you always wanted to make an album and incorporate your family history into it? Well grab a 12x12 binder style album and let's get started! Leave your email in the COMMENTS if yu want to purchase one or more kits. New kits will be shown as they become available in 2011. I recommend ordering as we go along because supplies are limited to 50 and under of each set.

"My Story" title page for Genealogy 101 in 2011 at the store where I work.
($7.50 plus shipping) I think I will upload it to the Basic Grey gallery too. They need more genealogy pages up on there. :) The girl at desk silhouette is from Cricut cartridge "Sentimentals."

"Original Me" January month --first set --a two page layout about yourself. ($14.50 plus shipping) I love this one because it is blue! My favorite color. :D Always start your record keeping and genealogy work with a few of your own pictures and statistics. Lecture notes and chart included.

"Mom and Dad" February month --second set --a two page layout about your birth or adoptive parents. Step parents also go in this section. ($14.50 plus shipping) Document your parents so it is all written down. Do this soon! Sorry the color here isn't coming across right from the camera phone but this layout uses Family Keepsake line from We R Memory Keepers and the true colors can be seen below. Lecture notes on using The internet to search for free records are included.

Thanks for checking this out. I will try to add the new layouts as the class goes along.

Do you know what "titles" you are going to use for the pages? How many double page spreads are you going to be creating? I am just trying to figure out if I can keep up with this or if it will drive me crazy that it is not done quickly. Thanks a bunch...I love your blog!

There will be a 2 page layout for each month from Jan 2011 until Nov 2011 for sure. I haven't planned out all the titles yet but I suppose I certainly could do so shortly. February as you can see is Mom and Dad and March will be "My Grandparents" and April will be "Grandmother and Grandfather". After that the titles will reflect more general family oriented sayings and not titled for a specific 'set' of people.
