Scrapbooking Your Family History, by Laura Best, is a 128-page book that teaches you how to combine scrapbooking and genealogy. The book is geared more toward advanced scrapbookers rather than beginners.

The first few pages are an introduction to what colors, tools and materials work well for heritage-style pages. In the following pages, the author explains how to collect and organize information, photos and memorabilia to use on your layouts.

The book also covers popular techniques used in heritage-style scrapbooking, including how to deacidify original documents that are not printed on acid-free paper and how to distress your layouts by incorporating tearing, chalking, sanding and staining into your project.

There are many valuable tips throughout the book, and the example layouts are simply beautiful.
