Your great-grandparents, your grandparents, your parents, your children, as well as yourself, all have a unique story to tell. Collect many years of memories and share them using words and pictures in a family book, a book allowing you to tell the story of one or more generations.

Capturing your baby's life story

The life story of a new generation in your family began with the birth of your child. The first twelve months are full of special moments and first times. Record these using images and words in a baby book for when your child is older. This way, you can browse through this special time together and record your story for your (great) grandchildren.

Capture the life stories of your children

Recording your children's life story doesn't have to stop after the first year. You can also make a beautiful book from the following years. Describe your child's funny sayings and actions and, include hilarious photos. You can also record the moments when you felt moved, proud or irritated in a book for later. Make such a book for every year of life or merge several years into one book.

Are your children already older, but do you still have plenty of old photos? Have them digitized and turn it into a nice digital album. Order extra copies of your book at a discount so you can hand them out to the whole family.

Also, record the stories of several generations in a family book. Create a kind of family tree using images and stories. Dive into the archives of family members and search for stories passed down from generation to generation. Maybe someone still has old documents or diaries of your ancestors in the attic.
