5.0 out of 5 stars A complete heritage album resource. Oct. 16 2003
By dinska
There are already two very good reviews of this book here at Amazon, but I wanted to stress to potential buyers that this is a COMPLETE heritage album resource. This is NOT the kind of book you usually find on this topic -- not only just a book of layouts.
If you've been debating about starting scrapbooking as a hobby and are looking at taking it up to document all your old attic finds, this is the book you want to read. The author begins with a straight-forward introduction to scrapbooking, and shows you the plusses and minuses of various techniques.
If you've toyed with the idea of starting to document your family history past what you already know, this is also a good beginner's resource. She goes on to explain the basics of genealogy and provides several helpful and necessary blank forms for starting your family search.
Not to forget that the meat of this book is devoted to creating your own family history album, and all the special considerations this particular kind of scrapbooking raises. Just what to do with all those antique photos, certificates and clippings, anyway?
This is a very detailed look at the heritage themed scrapbook; plenty of illustrated examples, a friendly DIY read, and I know it helped me figure out just what I wanted to do with all my own family treasures!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for serious heritage scrappers Nov. 18 2000
I've seen several books devoted to the topic of heritage scrapping, but none cover all the details specific to preserving family memories like this book does. The usual information regarding album choice, supplies and terminology are included here. Ms. Braun takes the artform a step further and provides examples and ideas to help make your heritage album more than a simple "photo album." She suggests principles for choosing color and theme and the book has ample illustrations of pages that reflect an attractive style that enhances rather than overpowers these old photos. Use of non-photo documents is well covered, too.
She provides a great deal of information for those who might wish to delve into geneaology as part of their project. Numerous resources are suggested to help the novice explore their family tree. She even has examples of how to handle the "unknowns" you will certainly encounter along the way. She shows a pair of photos, one of her great-great grandmother and an "unknown close friend"--not her great-great grandfather! There's a story waiting to be told there, and what a clever way to include the photo and allow the viewer's imagination free rein.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST HAVE for Scrapbookers & Family Historians May 14 2000
By A Customer
A match made in heaven.
Family historians find themselves overwhelmed with pictures, documents, newspaper clippings, pedigree charts, etc. What is the point if not to preserve all the work for generations to come? "Crafting Your Own Heritage Album" takes scrapbooking from the cute to the sophisticated and provides a wealth of information for preserving old photos and documents, archival supplies and sources, layouts, journalling, basics of genealogy, and web sites for genealogical research and scrapbooking.
If the end result you want is a timeless heritage album, this is a must-have.
