Carnival of Genealogy - Scrapbooking my parents' wedding photos
This month's theme is Scrapbooking your Family History.
I haven't done much scrapbooking. My first was a project several years ago for my sister-in-law's birthday.
Above are two pages. I have chosen to show photos and newspaper clippings about my parents' marriage in 1946. They were married at the church manse on a Wednesday afternoon. It was a small wedding. The newspaper clipping tells about the details of my mom's wedding dress and that of her attendant.
The first page was begun in a workshop and I finished it for the COG and the second page is a new creation. I could see doing several more pages to tell the story of how they met, when they got engaged, etc.
