There comes a time in every Family Tree Collection to stop collecting and put it all together!
That's where I've been and where I am and where I'm likely to be for awhile!
Restore or Repurpose?
This has been my dilemma with my Great Grandmothers Photo Album.
The original Album is in fair condition considering it is over 100 years old.
However, since the photos did not fit into the album properly to begin with and there is
no space to add information about the photos, the decision to 'Repurpose' was made.
With todays Scrapbooking tools, acid free papers, glues and larger albums,
my Great Grandmothers Family Tree, Photos and History will be preserved for another 100 years or longer.
I have a couple of weeks to finish The Carroll~Marley Scrapbook as I'm attending my first
Family Reunion of Great Grandmother's Marley-Leatherwood Descendents.
My newly found cousins are excited to see the photos, and I am excited to meet them
and share our Texas Family History.
I think Great Grandmother Martha Jane would approve!
