Heritage Journaling Ideas

Previous generations might have labeled their heritage photos, but you're likely to have a mystery photo -- or maybe dozens. Before you give up on making an informative layout, consider doing some quick sleuthing.
Start with What You Know

Compile all your photos and any letters or memorabilia that may offer clues. If you're researching an entire stack or album of unlabeled photos, it can be helpful to create a data sheet to organize your findings. Many genealogy Web sites offer free downloadable forms and charts.
