In Response To: Reunion Excitement/ CD Invintation ()
That's a great Idea...but you will have to have some printed docs for those that do not have PC's, have one but are afraid to use it or turn it on and have no idea how to insert a cd. "A Personal What"! Is it like a VHS? Please Don't forget those Apple MAC's!
I gave out family history cd's last year as Christmas presents. I was so proud of myself creating & stomping CD labels, Jewel Case Covers...etc. I was ready! Then I realized on Christmas Eve my parents, some aunt & Uncles...etc didn't have a computer. I rushed to Staples before they closed at 6pm, bought colored paper, binders and spent the next eight hrs organizing, printing trees, including photos & maps, then punching holes, creating covers and inserting all this stuff into about 20 binders. In the following weeks, after the info traveled throughout my family groups, I mailed about 10 more Cds & binders to NC, NY, PA, DC and Washington St.
It was all worth it! I received new info, corrections to trees and a strong interest in renewing our yearly family Reunion, dead for about 10 years.
