Hi, newbie (sort of) here. My husband's great-aunt made a heritage album. If I remember correctly, she started with her great-grandparents - her great-grandfather came to Ellis Island from Germany. She started with he and his wife then to the children. Each section is a line from the children in birth order on down to our children. Does this make sense? For example, great-grandpa Albert and his family - one of his sons, Arland and his family, then my f-i-l and his family, then my husband and I!
I hope this is understandable and helps.
