Document your family history

Growing up, I can recall an old brown leather suitcase under the bed, teeming with old photos. I didn’t want to leave them, hidden and collecting dust, but I also didn’t need framed photos all over the house. Why not digitally catalog old family photos from your albums and preserve them in stunning, modern and truly unique family history photo books? For this old family photos hack, we’ve provided you with some handy tips. Happy scanning!

Creating beautiful family history photo books is easy

How to preserve treasured family photos:

Creating beautiful family history photo books is easy

1. Scan the photos onto your device. (You could also simply photograph them).

Scan or photograph old photos and then upload to Snapfish as usual

2. Upload your photos into the Snapfish Photo Book builder.

Drag & drop the photos to where you want on the page

3. Select a suitable photo book background. There are plenty of layouts (and even embellishments to choose from). I uploaded a Family Tree image I had created using some Photo Editing software.

4. Add your address & enter a shipping method. Your photo book will be delivered direct to your door.

Nothing beats the excitement of opening the packaging on your photo book.

5. Enjoy and share with loved ones! (Why not order multiple copies as a great gift idea?) I am delighted with how the book has turned out. I gave a copy to my grandmother on her 100th birthday and it was the best gift she could have ever received; she kept it by her side and kept looking at it.  

Remember to capture the moment you share the book with your family
