From Booklist

Best combines two popular pastimes into one superlative volume sure to appeal to both ardent scrapbookers and amateur genealogists. After providing some general instructions and tips on organizing, collecting, and storing photographs and information, she details what supplies are needed and explains an assortment of ways scrapbook pages can be laid out. The bulk of the book is devoted to outlining the various arrangements and themes, including chronological, fashion, folklore and traditions, family lessons, household duties, occupations, homes, character traits, and current events. Lushly illustrated, this handy guide provides a wealth of practical and visual advice for family historians interested in a unique approach to preserving "ancestral memories." Margaret Flanagan

I just got this book and I spent an entire evening going over every page. It inspries you to not just put pictures on a page, but tell a story behind them. She urges you to write about the sad times as well as the good ones. The page she did about being another Laura's namesake has inspired me to do one about the Aunt I am named for, and another one about my Grandmother's beautful blue eyes. Collect the stories, get the pictures and this book.. then enjoy creating a legacy that can be enjoyed by those who come after us.

I own several books that deal with Heritage page design etc. This is definately one of the best. I looked at libraries and bookstores before purchasing this. It is the first one I bought in this category and still the one I go back to most often out of about 15 I own. Highly recommended.

I bought this book because of the wide variety of scrapbook techinques especially dealing with antiquing and aging scrapbook pages. I was surprised by the number of good ideas on how to scrapbook my grandparents.

This is great book, because not only does she do a great job presenting the information, but this subject matter can be boring for some people, and she does a wonderful job of making this entire book interesting. She makes you want to continue to read and gain knowledge so you can run out and get the information for your family tree, so you can do a scrapbook of your family. She also does a wonderful job on the scrapbook pages, they are amazing looking, in other books vintage scrapbook pages can all start looking alike, because they are usually have all the same or similar colors, so they don't look interesting at all to me. But in this book the scrapbook pages look great. I don't want to forget to tell you that this book is full of useful information, you can't believe after you read one great thing, that she has something else great to let you know about. It's not just great information about the genealogy part, she also gives you good scrapbooking information on how to distress pictures and papers, how to do tearing of papers, and more. The authors is a genealogist and she has another book Genealogy for the First Time, so she's very knowledgeable on this subject.
Unfortunately nothing's perfect, so I did have a problem with her sometimes instructing you to do certain things, but not supplying you with the information needed to do it. It's when she tells you to use the right thing for the time period, but she doesn't tell you what the right thing is. Now these are small things, like lace, ribbon, and a few embellishments used on the pages. Now on these small things most people aren't aware of what was used in certain time periods. But this is the only small thing that I had a problem with.
But I highly recommend this book. This book is worth every penny.

I'm not a scrapbooker, but I needed to find some way to pull together information on family history and research which would provide some context along with the photos and documents. This book gave me a lot of good ideas on how to go about creating a family album that will make sense to future generations. My albums won't be as fancy or pretty as Laura's, but they will certainly be a lot nicer than they would have been otherwise.

This is a very nicely put together book. The layouts are interesting and the ideas for scrapbooking your families history through photos and memorabilia are easy to manage. The author is knowledgable and you can really make some lovely looking pages with her suggestions and ideas. Not the best book on this subject, but certainly worth the price!
