SIDELIGHTS: Bev Kirschner Braun told CA: "I have been doing genealogy research for about fifteen years. I've accumulated quite a collection of photographs, documents, and family memorabilia. About seven years ago I began creating family scrapbooks. I began doing research on archival products and preservation information for my family history collection and my scrapbook supplies. At the time there was very little information available on creating heritage albums. A friend put me in touch with an editor at F & W Publications who was looking for someone to author a book on heritage albums. I made the call, and we both had very similar ideas on the content for the book. The result of that effort is my first book, Crafting Your Own Heritage Album. It is the ideal book for anyone who wants to create a priceless family heirloom that will be the central resource for a well-documented family history. There is lots of practical information on archival products, preservation products and techniques, as well as a chapter on basic genealogy research."
