Join Me for the Genealogy Scan Along

From The Family Curator . . .

Do you have a family history photo book on your To Do List? Summertime is a great time to tackle this project, and more fun if you’re working with other people doing the same thing. Starting next week, I’ll be hosting a Genealogy Scan Along at The Family Curator website with tutorials and tips to create a family history photo book.
