October is Family History Month

It's Autumn here in Maine, the days are getting shorter, the evenings cooler, and the colors of fall are absolutely beautiful.

So now is the time to sit back and relax and think about those family history projects you want to complete this winter. October is the perfect month to do just that! As a jolly old man once said "Making a list and checking it twice!" holds true for planning those projects and making sure you have all your supplies necessary to do it.

Some project suggestions are: preserving and labeling your photo's so that future generations will know who is in that picture. It's not to late to have one more cookout and invite family members over to share stories and take pictures. Journaling those stories is another project as well as making a family history recipe book. Remember grandma's favorite pie recipe, wouldn't that look good in a recipe book with her picture on that page. What about those holiday recipes that have become tradition every year? Who gave them to you? Is that person given credit in your recipe book. Recruit other family members to add to their family recipe cookbook and think of how it can become a really great Christmas gift to everyone.

These are just a few suggestions for you to work with. Now that I have written this I need to go and check out my supply list, while some of the items are still on sale!
