Re: Presenting research at the reunion

Hi A. Spence,

I believe Felecia was referring to me in her previous post. I used Lulu.com to print my family book called "The Descendants of Frank and Mary Travick" $15 for B&W and $30 for Color the book itself was 115 pages.
I used Adobe Photoshop and Pagemaker to put my book together and then saved it as a PDF to upload to lulu.com.

I did a appreciation page, A little story about myself and how I got started in Family History, and family tree page, and then table of contents.

then moved on to:
-------------------------------
A)Frank and Mary Travick
1)Listed information and and their children's names
2) Census pages up until Mary Travicks last census in 1910)
3)The church they attended with pictures of the actual church which was remodeled in 1955)
4) Deed Records when Frank purchased property after slavery (My sold the property in the early 1990's)
--------------------------------
They had five daughters so I separated them into their respective families wit their husbands. I went by The oldest sister to the youngest.

B) Lucy Travick and Albert Bivins

1) A copy of their marriage record

2) Census Pages of the Albert and Lucy Bivins and any census that their descendants appeared on until 1930

3) Information listing their descendants all the way to 2007.

4) Pictures of as many Bivins descendants who sent me photos

5) Death Records
--------------------------------
C) Jane Travick and Charlie Garnett (my ancestors)

1) A copy of their marriage record

2) Census Pages of the Charlie(he died before 1900 and couldn't be found in 1870-1880) and Jane and any census that their descendants appeared on until 1930

3) Information listing their descendants all the way to 2007.

4) Pictures of as many Garnett descendants who sent me photos

5) Death Records
----------------------------------

2) Census Pages of the Mark and Martha Slater and any census that their descendants appeared on until 1930

3) Information listing their descendants all the way to 2007.

4) Pictures of As many Slater descendants who sent me photos

E) Rosie Travick and Elias McClinton

2) Census Pages of the Elias and Rosie McClinton (they had no children but they did raise their a niece and nephew)

3) Information on them

4) No photos of them (I know there was one of Rosie but relative would not look for me)

5) Death Records
------------------------------------
D) Mary Travick II and Albert McClinton and her second marriage to John Russell

1) A copy of her marriage records with Albert and later John

2) Census Pages of the Albert and Mary McClinton, John Russell and any census that their descendants appeared on until 1930

3) Information listing their descendants all the way to 2007.

5) Death Records

I wish I would've included some information about slavery and the county in which they lived. But I forgot to, I'll have to make up for it in my current book that I'm doing "The Descendants of Bat and Dora Johnson" former slaves who lived in Montgomery, TX. I expect this book to be about at least 160 or 200 pages.
Felecia had some great ideas that I'll probably use too.
