2016 Sessions with Letty Rodella

4D How to Organize Your Genealogy Records Into Family Heirloom Books
Syllabus: 2016/4D_Organizing_your_Genealogy.pdf

Letty Rodella will share how she organized 500 years of family history into several Family Heirloom books. She will explain the process involved in putting a book together. She will show how she developed the contents of each book: the table of contents, tree charts, family group sheets, and the importance of notes or short stories about each person in your book. She will also offer suggestions about the different types of paper used and the importance of the book cover and spine. It is her hope that when you organize your genealogy records into family books, perfect for showcasing them on the coffee table, your book will be one that your guests will want to pick up and read.
