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.

I think this post shares a great way we can organize & archive family keepsakes and genealogy, the whole point of this group. My husband turned many of his high school English papers into a book, and added his spin on things. You can do the same with some of your keepsakes. Be sure to include the story behind the keepsakes so future generations (or a mass audience) will know the back story. Have fun with your family history projects! #familyhistorywriting

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.

Here's another installment of photographing the stories of your keepsakes. Do you have mother/daughter items that you need to photograph? #familyhistory   #genealogy   #relationships   #keepsakes   #archiving  
Remember the post High School Rings Have Two Sides? In that post, I shared how I wore my mother's high school ring while I was in high school. When I obtained my senior ring, I didn't want to stop wearing my mother's ring. Th...
