The Art of Storybooking and Digital Scrapbooking
Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento
Imagine your children and grandchildren reading their favorite superhero book, and it's about one of the amazing heroes in your own family.
Linda Katz Mendoza of the Heritage Makers online publishing and digital scrapbooking company will show how you can create stories that will capture the essence of your family’s history, heroes, and memories for generations to come, in hardbound story books. Be the author of your own family stories.
Linda, a retired peace officer with the California Youth Authority, has been doing family genealogy since 1981. Her paternal grandfather and his ancestors were Jewish immigrants from Poland . Her paternal grandmother’s family were descendants of Mayflower colonist Stephen Hopkins. The maternal ancestors were longtime Roseville residents immigrating from Sweden and Germany . Her interest in local genealogy led her to the Roseville Genealogy Society and the Sacramento Jewish Genealogical Society; she has been a member of both for two years.
At a Roseville genealogy meeting Linda heard a presentation on Heritage Makers and the art of storybooking family history. She immediately became a consultant. With Heritage Makers publishing system, Linda assists families create treasured keepsakes, one story at a time, to be shared for many years to come.
By preserving her family’s legacy in the storybooks she creates, she can pass them down through generations to come. Linda believes that “Photos without words are memories lost.”
