Your ancestors worked, dreamed, cried, danced, laughed, raised families and experienced life in a variety of time periods throughout history. Some of the most valiant people are not mentioned in history books but are found in dusty journals and in the memories of grandparents. These are the stories to preserve and celebrate. The gift of legacy and belonging can heal and strengthen families. "Scrapbooking Family in Historical Events" inspires one to search out his legacy and display the findings through scrapbooking.
