Recently I collected another print run of my Family History Diary and I was delighted with the new section I asked them to included.
What is a Family History Diary?
An A4 40-page booklet printed on quality 120gsm paper offering a simple and easy way to organise your research. It is a handy and easily transportable way to keep your information at hand when visiting archives, libraries, relatives or family history fairs and events.
No longer is there the need to be laden down with files and lose papers while researching.
The centrally held family tree forms the core of your work with each ‘couple’ having a unique page number – a simple and quick way to find who you need without flicking through the pages.
The page for each couple has sections for their names, places of birth, death and burials with ‘tick boxes’ so you can see at a glance if you have a birth, marriage and death certificate for the couple.The marriage information also has a section. Plus spaces to include up to 12 children and their relevant details.
The census is the next important fact to be included from 1841 up to the current 1911 census – space is also available for the address and the census reference, which is also a boon when wanting to follow up or print the information at a later date.
As well as a notes section at the front of the booklet the back has pages for monumental inscriptions, including such information: where the headstone is, a brief description and most importantly, the wording.
The booklets are in a choice of colours – if using more than one booklet for different sides of the family you can have a specific colour to a family.
Now it’s even easier to transfer the newly found information to your main way of storing your family history, be it a computer, database or card system.
All in all a good tool for the beginner or more experienced researcher and now includes an extra page for a new family history source.
Don’t forget to use a pencil – if you find an error you can simply erase !
