Today's focus on 'craft-y ideas for family historians', began with a 'Show and Tell' by Bev of a framed crocheted lace doyly made by her milliner Great Aunt Victoria (b 1887) surrounded by ribbon lace roses made by her aunt's daughter. Guest speaker Jan Brown then shared her chosen method of presenting her family story - Scrapbooking. A keen scrapbooker for many years, Jan's album of thoughtfully and creatively presented photographs, documents, newspaper clippings was most engaging.
Robyn reported finding property details to follow up with Judy at the next Drop In and presented the draft of her next story. We also followed up Robyn's query about adding a number of family photos in a row in a word document, with the suggestion to use 'insert table', then 'insert picture', then remove the table grid lines.
Robyn's story on 'Correspondence' is now with her story collection on the website. We also had a look at Jacquie Lawson e-cards, which Bev has found to be a delightful way of connecting with family members met as a result of family research.
At the end of the session we watched a September 2023 Ancestry Update which included the recent introduction of a fan chart. Interested? Watch below or click on this link https://youtu.be/no-uyOkSVLw?si=t0cpBMDBjIdwWwoR
