10 Can't Miss Photo's To Take Each Month

I could spend hours looking on Pinterest for Genealogy ideas.  Recently, a new group of genealogy boards were created by Trace Magazine.  Every genealogist likes freebies and I am no different.  I was looking over the board titled, "Genealogy/Freebies" and came across this great photo idea.  It is a list of suggested photos to take for each month of the year.  For example, in May suggestions are:

  • Barbeques
  • Grandma’s hands
  • Prom happenings
  • Photos with Mom
  • Flowers in the garden
  • Mother’s Day presents
  • Cinco de Mayo celebrations
  • Students moving out of the college dorm
  • Cemeteries decorated for Memorial Day
  • People drinking mint juleps or wearing hats for Derby Day
Can you add to the list?  I thought of confirmation.  Trace Magazine has a lot of genealogy related pins and boards.  Some of the boards, all related to genealogy, are How To's, Kids, Organization, Infographics, Research, Blogs, Must Haves, Events, Funnies, Scrapbooking, Recipes, Maps, Roots, and so much more.

Head over to Pinterest and check out Trace Magazine, but don't blame me if you get lost in it and waste a lot of time.  I have!


  1. I love that idea! It would be a fun Instagram/blog challenge to try to do them all for a whole year! I looked at the list, it would be a challenge, but fun. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I thought it was a great idea too. I may have to try a few of them.
