Getting Creative with my Family History

There are several resources on the internet that allow you to be creative with your genealogy. No, I don’t mean creating lost ancestors, or fabricating your family history, I am talking about how you present your genealogy for others to see. You can be as simple or as elaborate as your imagination allows, with the Digital Photo applications available today, or, if you aren’t feeling inspired to create on your own, you can let the applications assist you in your creations.
I like using Scrapblog for creating scrapbooks. It is a free online program that is very versatile, I use it often, read more about ways I used Scrapblog for my genealogy.

Another application I’m trying out is Smilebox, it isn’t quite as flexible as Scrapblog, but you can make it your own and publish to your blog. Here is an example:
