Ideas for Family History and Genealogy

I have been working on printing my digital pictures using Snapfish. Some of the photos are old family pictures that go back to the 1800's. Some I recognize and know who they are. Some my Father who died two years ago could not tell me who they were. I know it is one of my Grandmothers...from Poland...taken in Canada with her children and their spouses. I Father thought that it was his Grandmother Caroline. She moved to Canada with all her children in the late 1800's. I do not know if her husband stayed in Poland or had died. She is the mother of my Grandfather John.

All I have in the way of photos and family history I have done. My mother had a large box of photos with no labels. Some I know....and some I do not. So I am going to make sure my chilldren know who these people are by labeling the photos or if they are in one of my labeling the back of the scrapbook page.

I send all of my photos to Snapfish. I get individual photos and organize them my family name to eventually go into the many pages I have made. When I do all of them I will then make more pages.
One service they have is a collage print. And that is where you can pick photos from your digital photos and create a collage. I love them. Since, I can put them in the front and back page of my scrapbook and make copies of the collage to send to relatives or friends. I made on of Disneyland from last year for someone who came with us and gave it to him. Great ideal!
