Video Interview with Katie Scott on Family Heritage Scrapbooking


Heritage scrapbooking is a big and rewarding undertaking. Get started and inspired today.

At the Get It Scrapped membership we host weekly live webinars for members. This one is from November, 2014, when we talked to Katie Scott about family heritage storytelling. (Become a member for a library full of recordings and new live events every week.)

Katie had tons to share on this topic, and the audience had plenty to ask and share, too. We’re planning another session to continue learning from Katie and her passionate pursuit of family story research and scrapbooking.

These are two of our favorite Katie quotables from the session (and plenty of links and notes are below the video).

No one cares about old photos; they care about how they’re connected to those old photos.

You’d be surprised how many of you have postmasters in your ancestry.

Katie’s tips

  • Buy photos on etsy – look for family name + location
  • Create a facebook group for your big extend family and share photos there — you could get stories about photos of people you can’t identify
  • Make posts to your blog that have text rich with names, dates, and locations — so that when others search they come across both the information and the questions you have
  • Search military records

    I’ve watched the interview with Katie twice now, and I learned new things this time around! I’m about to embark on heritage albums for my kids, and her information is so valuable. I enjoy your interview style, Debbie, as it has that personal touch that brings the person alive for us. Thanks to both of you!

    Margeret, Thanks for your comment. Love hearing how helpful Katie was for you — and that you like my interview style. Katie will be back on March 16 with more information for GIS members
