Photo Album and Certificates Water Damaged and Moldy

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Yesterday a lady gave me two photo albums that were badly damaged by water and mold. How could they get this way!? They are a genealogist’s nightmare! Or perhaps any mother’s nightmare. Well, it wasn’t a raging flood. It wasn’t a mud slide or earthquake. It wasn’t the water from firemen putting out a fire. It wasn’t from a hurricane.

Water damage from a flood? No....

Earthquake in China – Prepare Your Home and Workplace- 4 Tips

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

The reports from China about the massive earthquake once again remind us of the every increasing activity that puts our homes and businesses at risk. You realize, of course, that with an earthquake you also have broken pipes, water damage and mold. For those of you NOT in earthquake country, think again! A hurricane or tornado rattles and shakes you up in the same way.


Scrapbook, photo album, memories, family history

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010


What do you have that really has meaning and shows the quality of your business or great moments in personal or family life? Last weekend, my nephew got married to a really great girl. We are thrilled to have her in our family. Their story of how they met, how they romanced each other and how the proposal went was sooo cute and it was all illustrated in a scrapbook next to the sign in book at the reception. Everyone got a kick out of looking through it. What a priceless piece of family history that was JUST created! I would be heart sick to know that because of moving 13 times like newlyweds do or because of some other casual forgetfulness that this scrapbook of memories was to be lost… and these aren’t even MY kids. My sister gets the message though. I wrote her with this suggestion.

What about 1st Edition Revisions of your book?

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Thanks Scott. I’ve had a little time to go through your e-book. What are your plans for updating Chapter 3 to include items such as USB drives, external hard drives, etc. – items that most people work with today? Do you have an upcoming revised edition in the works? If so, when would the revised e-book be available? I’d like to sell your e-book via our website, but don’t want to sell it if a revised edition is to be released soon. Please let me know when it will be available, and we’ll go from there.
