Family history shrines

You can make your own family history shrine or display using this free 14 page ebook.

This illustrated ebook includes a supply list, plus step-by-step instructions. It also includes helpful tips for finding family photos, preparing them, and assembling your own family history shrine. In addition, you will find suggestions for teaching this as a workshop for others.

This ebook is available in two formats:

You can download it as a PDF file that you can read using any free PDF reader such as the free program from Adobe.

Or, you can download it as a Word for Windows document if you have a PC. The font is Georgia, which is a standard font on most computers.

To download the file, place the cursor over the file that you want and then right-click to save it to your hard drive. Then, you can open it and print your own copy of this free 14-page book.

You have my permission to make additional copies for other people as long as the copyright notice remains on each page, and you don’t charge money (beyond what you were charged per copy) for these copies.

You can also freely teach this as a workshop using this ebook as a handout, as long as you make it clear that I’m the one who designed the project.


June 2010 Freebies & Surprises


Oops!  The postal service worked faster than I expected.

I’m in the process of creating the freebies for the membership pages.  However, you can visit it even while it’s a work-in-progress.

The login URL is:

The password for June 2010 is: summerfun

If that login info doesn’t work, use the Contact form (linked above) to let me know right away.

Here’s what’s in progress for that website:

Every month, you can download that month’s freebies.  They’ll change monthly.  (Sorry, if you miss a month, there’s no way to grab most of the past months’ freebies.  However, many of them will be for sale after the month is over.)

Here’s what I’m working on for June 2010:

  • A free, single-sheet art zine that you can download and print at home.
  • Three royalty-free clipart pages with artwork you can print & use in your own collages, zines, ATCs, etc.
  • Several tools and reports if you’re doing business online.  (Some are there, already.)
  • Plus other surprises.

Check back again in a few days.

P.S. I’ve backdated this post so it won’t show up on the “recent articles” list.  It really is only for people who receive my postcards.  Don’t share this URL, okay? Thanks!
