Preserving Family History is so much more than a bunch of iPhone shots backed up to a "cloud" somewhere.. Your family history is the stories and images capturing the memories you create with those you love for all time. The next generation deserves a record of your life. Don't let it slip away.
"The Heirloom Registry." Think about it...If something were to happen to you would your family know what "heirlooms" they posses & the stories behind them? Check this site out. It's a very cool idea to preserve your family's treasures.
"We are the rememberers, the people left behind, to keep the one who's gone from us alive in heart and mind, the people left to cherish and preserve a legacy. Yes, we are the rememberers...and we will always be."...a touching heritage poem. This would make a lovely dedication page for a heritage scrapbook or family history.
When you want to preserve family recipes photograph the originals or scan them. Then place them into a book or something similar. Also organize recipes by family events like Thanksgiving etc. so that everyone knows what the traditions are for your family.
