  • Tell your family stories
  • Enhance your stories by adding photos and details
  • Leave a legacy, not a burden
  • Identify mystery photos
  • Investigate family legends
  • Dig deeper & climb higher on your family tree

Do as much or as little as you like!

Each section includes activity choices:

  • Low effort (Do this if nothing else.)
  • Medium effort (Your family will thank you.)
  • High effort (Ask for help if you need it.)

A professional organizer and genealogist helps you tell the stories of your photos, family, and things.

“At last, a clear, easy to read, and engaging book that will help you uncover the stories hiding in your family photo collection. Hazel brings to life her own stories and takes the mystery out of genealogy research. This book is an excellent resource for anyone ready to tackle this project and meets the promise Hazel makes in her introduction: I’ve never met a person who didn’t have a story worth telling. Everyone has a story, and this book will help you tell yours!" - Cathi Nelson — CEO / Founder of The Photo Managers
