Taking stock of the past

Looking for a family history project?

Have you documented the important items in your home? This is also a great way to get younger family members involved in your family history, and what better time than in the school holidays.

It's time to take stock of what you own and where it came from. It's an easy thing to do and you might learn something you didn't already know about your family. Create a worksheet to record your data. You may also wish to photograph your items and prepare a small photo album.

Yeees, this is very important and so often forgotten. I am reminded about my next important task. Thanks!
