One week from today I will be heading off on my genealogy trip to Germany and Switzerland. One of the things I have been working on the past few days is putting together a couple of photo books on my ancestors to give to the research centers over there. I will be printing off my family tree for them, but wanted to make something special as well. I have been struggling with how much to write in the books since language may be a barrier. I have settled upon using photos of documents and people to mostly fill the pages. I wish I had some additional family photos to use, but I have to work with the ones that have been left to me by my parents. The book for Switzerland is finished and being processed, and I want to get the one for Germany wrapped up today to make sure I get it in time to take with me. I hope that the people over there will be as interested in the family members who left everything they knew as we are in the ones who stayed behind.
In six days, you'll be on the trip of a lifetime, pun intended!
