Six months and a lot of research later, all her efforts paid off. The book was presented to her husband at a small dinner celebration with family. A copy was later given to each of their children. Everyone now has it prominently displayed in their home and loves it.
At our first meeting we pored through boxes of “stuff” and developed a storyline for the book. We decided to use chapters to tell the story. Here are a few of the chapter headings.
At the front of the book is a 3-generation photo family tree tracing his parent’s roots.
We also used lots of his old school year photos, report cards, and news clippings.
In the end, the book is a lifetime heirloom for the whole family. The hardest part, according to Margie, was keeping it a secret for six months!
Please get in touch or request a quote at the top of the page if you’d like to make a family or personal history book for an upcoming birthday, anniversary, wedding, or retirement celebration. We’d love to help!
