RootsTech2014 – Presentation on Creating a Digital Genealogy Scrapbook

Just finished creating a video that demonstrates how to create a digital genealogy scrapbook page using a marriage certificate, Birth certificate as well as photos.  The page documents information that I have on my grandfather Fred Schwerman, Sr. and his wife Ruth (Bauer).   I created the video as part of my upcoming presentation at RootsTech2014.  My topic is Creating a Digital Genealogy Scrapbook and I’ll be speaking at 10:30 on Thursday.  I’ve attended this conference for the past two years and have always walked away with very useful information.

Attached is a copy of the page that I demonstrate in the video.  I’m excited! Can’t wait to share this awesome tool with the many genealogists who will attend the conference from all over the world.

I was even able to contact a designer and obtain a discount for attendees that are interested in trying out YinDesign Templates that are used as the basis for the page.  For a preview of what she has to offer go to:

I’m working diligently on completing the album so that I’ll have examples of all the options for preserving and sharing ones family history.
