Ancestry Projects–Just in Time for the Holidays

With temperatures unseasonably warm here in the Midwestern U.S., it’s hard to believe Halloween is just around the corner. If it weren’t for the leaves falling from the trees, I would be hard-pressed to believe we’re moving into late October. Next thing, you know the holidays are here.

This year I was thrilled to see the launch of a new Ancestry Projects page roll out, with helpful instructions on how to turn photographs, record images, and information you’ve worked hard to gather into thoughtful gifts for family. You can open a PDF file with instructions for creating:

  • Family History Book (which we talked about in my column last week)Anc. Projects-recipe book1.bmp
  • Family Recipe Book
  • Portrait Templates
  • Family History Calendar
  • Hoodie/T-shirt
  • Greeting Cards

My husband inherited his grandmother’s treasured recipe book. It’s falling apart and includes tons of recipes, with handwritten recipes and notes from family members. My plan is to scan the family favorites and create a recipe book with Ancestry Press to share with my husband’s mom and siblings (and of course one for my daughter!).

Anyway, they’ve come up with some great ideas for meaningful family history projects and step-by-step instructions make the projects simple to create. Check it out and have some fun making gifts for your family–and yourself! Click here to learn more.

  1. Great idea. I am now working on making a book for my family of my father’s letters to his mother written during WWll with pictures of him taken during the war. That will be part of their Christmas presents. It will introduce a side of him that they did not know.
