This is my Dad's side to the left and My Mums side on the right of the matching page 2. I decided to use strings to connect the pictures to the relevant lineage so my children can follow the lines. My Great Nan Rand lived to 93 so I was very blessed to meet her and spend alot of time with her. I haven't included alot of pictures in this layout as I still have to go and visit my Nan and take scanner in tow and maybe spend a great deal of time scanning the 100's of photos she has kept. I really wish I had of been able to do this along time ago as alot of the little details have been forgotten and I wish I had of known what to ask back then when my Poppy was alive still.
I don't have alot of photos so I've just put in names and tags where relevant, YAY me, one more page down, now to get stuck into DH's side !
I wasn't going to go back as far as I could with these pages, I just wanted some photos of my parents, parents kind of thing to show a lineage to the boys, so they feel grounded in roots that are rich, if you know what I mean. I think having a rich history can give a special feeling of belonging and that is something I wanted to include in their baby books for them to have.
