Need some help... I am subbing for a class called "Family History for Busy Lives," but I wasn't given material to go off of. Here's my questions that I'd love to see what you would do?

Name a family history related task that you could do in 15 minutes.

Back story... let's say you're a super busy person but occasionally you have 15 minutes of free time that you're willing to devote to family history, organization, keep sake preservation, etc. What can be reasonably accomplished in 15 minutes?

Thanks in advanced for your suggestions..
(Sorry if you've seen this elsewhere. I'm in a bit of a bind)

After the exhausting photo shoot today, I have this bit of advice to share... if you're just learning photography or getting back into your hobby, don't start with sparkly or reflective jewelry. Please pick something much easier to photograph!!! You'll be glad you did!!!

Could your children's early years be the key to getting them interested in their family history?

My girls love hearing about their early years too but then so do I as a 40 year old! I just wish my parents had documented much more as I only have a handful of photos due to loss and damage over the years.

Anyone have Masonic rings in their collection? I'm so blessed these two treasures are in my collection as their journey to me took a strange course. #keepsakes   #photography  
In August 2012, I received two pieces of family treasure that I didn't know existed or would ever become mine. I shared the story of how these two rings came to me on my research trip that year in the post Meeting My Father's...

Thanks. I didn't know them well but I did learn how much they truly did love each other. I think these photos emphasize them. Thanks for commenting!

A great tool for archiving family keepsakes, is a camera. You might photograph an item on white regularly, but a different colored background can play an important role in telling a story. Black and jewelry can work but can also fail. Now, I'm an amateur at this but I hope the things I'm learning helps you grab your camera to start preserving your treasures. #archiving   #keepsakes   #genealogy  
The post Lessons Learned From FirstPhoto Session shared my first experiment with my new camera. I thought photographing gold rings on a black background would showcase the items. I have photographed many items with white back...

Why organize your family keepsakes? When it's organized you can create cool things like a family history scrapbook. With my files organized, I used my mother's description of my birthday, combined with photos from the event. I have a little piece of mom (who passed away in 2012) with me forever in my projects.

Sometimes we keep things that we don't necessarily need. Make a goal to clean out your clutter.

Seeing your house full of clutter can affect your mood negatively and make your personal space seem uninviting.
