X is for Xerox

When Mom plunged into genealogy research, she kept the Xerox machine at the public library busy. She worked hard tracking down ancestors and filling out charts with all the dates and names she found.

To share her discoveries with her six children, she created family books for each of us. These decorated notebooks contained copies of the ancestor charts, photocopies of family photographs and other memorabilia.

  1. Great minds think alike. I did Xerox too and talked about how my mom used it. It was very helpful for coping the records she found. Gail’s books were not only a family record but beautifully crafted.
