Those Who Came Before Us by Researched and Written by Maggie and Ed Stokes | Make Your Own Book
This great idea is so simple and straightforward, I'm surprised I didn't think of it. Authors Maggie and Ed Stokes did a beautiful, elegant job of it!
- Create a family history book by writing a short biography/character sketch of each person in your family tree. Whether a few paragraphs or a few pages, try to focus on the whole individual, not just his or her role in the family.
- If available, choose a few good photos of each individual at different ages to illustrate his/her story.
- Try to make the narrative warm and friendly, not clinical and detached!
