For Reunions, Try a Tri-fold

by AAGS member Maxine Hairston

A reunion is the perfect time to recognize family milestones. But it's not necessary to bring a huge family history book each time, displaying everything about everybody. Especially if your relatives have seen the book a number of times. Sometimes it's better to "think small." Place current updates on a regular size 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper, divided into three sections (on the front and back). The benefits: - It's a quick way to show recent marriages, births, deaths, graduations, etc. - Family members can easily fold and take copies of the info with them. - You don't have to carry around heavy books. The tri-fold developed for my recent Pelham Family reunion was fun to make and people really enjoyed it. Below is a front and back view:
