St. Tammany Parish Library Presents
Memories of St. Tammany

How to Create a Family History Scrapbook

Presented by

Anna Marie Catoir

In the year 2010, the St. Tammany Parish Library is celebrating the Bicentennial Anniversary of the West Florida Revolt of 1810, which allowed for the establishment of St. Tammany Parish. To commemorate the bicentennial, the library is enabling residents to participate in a series of programs called Memories of St. Tammany or M.O.S.T. at various branch libraries.

To commemorate the bicentennial, Memories of St. Tammany or M.O.S.T.  programs will teach residents of the parish how to preserve and share their family histories with four sessions which are as follows:

How to Write  a Memoir

How to Create a Family History Scrapbook

How to Record an Oral History Session

How to Scan and Digitally Save Photographs and Documents

During the How to Create a Family History Scrapbook class, Anna Marie Catoir will guide participants while they create their own family scrapbook using ideas from the book called Scrapbooking Your Family’s History by Laura Best, which is available at St. Tammany branch libraries. Participants can expect to plan an overview of their scrapbook and to start one to two pages of it during the class.

The following items should be brought to class:


3-4  pages of acid-free scrapbook pages. (12 x 12 is standard, but 8.5 x 11 works well also)
