5 Things to keep in mind while making a family-tree scrapbook

Last Updated :

Moms all around the world face one common problem, teaching kids about their family and relatives. This problem is especially more predominant in families that stay abroad or where parents are from different communities or of different nationalities. A scrapbook, describing your family tree, can be one solution to this problem.

Making a family tree scrapbook will surely be a fun way of teaching your children about the family heritage. Who knows, you might end up digging up some fact which you didn’t know either.

Keep some pointers in mind before you start this scrapbook


1.      Keep the scrapbook layout simple. Do not mix people from mother’s and father’s side. This will end up confusing your children (or the viewer) more. So cover one people from one side of the family first and then move on to the other half.

2.      The center-spread of the scrapbook, meaning that part of the scrapbook where two pages in the middle of the book can be used as one huge page, can be utilized for making the actual family tree. Draw a tree with either the previous generation, or the one before that (depending on how big or small your family is). Check out layout ideas for the tree on Pinterest before your start the project.

3.      Dedicate one page to one person. Add details like their picture, date of birth, their education, their hobbies, their interests and profession. Give special emphasis to grandparents, uncles and aunts.

4.      Include as many family photos as possible. This way, the viewer will remember the faces of all family members and even distant relatives. So that if they do bump into each other at a party, they would know they’ve met family!

5.      Add information about previous generations as well. Embellish with letters, postcards, greeting cards and gift cards from your relatives. If there is an art-and-craft activity which all the kids did when they got along with their cousins for a day, then add those items too.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
