Honor your heritage!

Deuteronomy 32:7 tells us to remember the days of old; consider the generations long past. Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders, and they will explain to you.
Honor your family with preservation for future generations!

Heritage Scrapbooking: Honoring your ancestors, preserving memories for your decedents. Some are fortunate enough to have treasured photographs and tokens of family history. The people in the photos are not only just old relatives, they show who you are however indirectly. Heritage scrapbooks help keep the family history alive for future generations to explain their family history, and where they might have inherited their nose, eyes, hair color or even their sense of humor. The stories pictures and treasures of a time past. Some day our stories will be of times past.

If you are not in possession of old photographs, or scraps of the past, that is okay, you can still scrap your heritage. Remember the stories of your parents, grandparents or others? Write them down and decorate your pages. Any thing goes with heritage.
This year (and new decade) take a fresh look at the past. Interview relatives, or strangers, for stories of generations past.
Start this moment to build a heritage album for your children, and theirs!
Join us at CPC in preserving the past, even as it is the present.  I had a dear Great Uncle that engineer for the Erie Railroad.  Here is a preservation of remembrance in Honor of Orlie!
