Include Recipes With Your Genealogy Research

When Mom died I didn't find her apple pie recipe, it's gone forever. I decided to gather family favorite recipes and put them in the "More Notes" in the genealogy we're working on. That way the kids, grandkids will have a place to look for their childhood favorites.


The Family Tree Maker has 36 places for each persons photos and a nice space for short stories, remembrances. That's where the recipes are going. And they are backed up on CD's as new info is added. Hopefully more people will do this for their families. I wish I had thought of this sooner.

I think this is a super idea, would have loved Mum's bread pudding recipe. I've never made one quite the same.
