April Genealogy Meeting

The Crittenden County Genealogy Society met this past Saturday with another interesting and informative meeting.  

Present at the meeting in the picture at right are:
LtoR: Betty Croft, Brenda Underdown, Connie Gould, Dot Kunnecke, Doyle Polk
Backrow: Steve Eskew, Fay Carol Crider and Don Foster.

The program was about Genealogy and History gifts that one can make for Christmas gifts or just as a special gift to members of your family.  Some of the ideas discussed were: 
  • Family Reunion Cookbooks, at your family reunion make family group photos and gather family members recipes;  Not only family photos but also favorite family recipes to pass down through future generations
  • Family recipe cookbooks, included with the recipes, some family history
  • Family photo albums with some history for each photo; Don't leave those special pictures just laying around, place them in an album or on a CD to share with family members, have dates and the occasions listed with the photo
  • Calendars with family members birth dates, anniversaries, special occasions, or other information about the family, also photos can be used with the calendars.
We as the family historians are responsible for collecting and saving our family history and photos.  Always remember to write the date, and the names of the people on the back of the photos.  A little time in doing this will be appreciated many years later.
