Unique Family Journals – Genealogy Gift Ideas

sand dune publishing llc

Just in time for Father’s Day and the graduation gift season, I’ve received information from Sand Dune Publishing LLC about a series of journals entitled Between Me And You™ a few things I’ve been meaning to ask.

Termed “relationship keepsake journals,” each one is meant for a specific type of recipient such as a father, mother, even attendees at a family reunion.  I especially like the “between me and you Dad” journal – it would make a unique gift this Father’s Day.

The premise, as described on the Sand Dune Publishing Co. website:

“Give these keepsake journals to the people you care about most. Each hardcover, spiral-bound book measures 6 ½ ” x 7 ¼ ” and contains 35 – 45 fun-to-ask and fun-to-answer questions.  You get them back with handwritten responses you’ll cherish forever.”

Take a look around at the various journals and you’ll see what I mean.  Not only will you have a neat way to “prompt” family members to describe various aspects of their lives, but you’ll receive a keepsake in their own writing.  And, as genealogy bloggers, you could even make these into blog posts (with the person’s permission, of course!).

Right now there is a sale at Sand Dunes Publishing with 20% when you purchase 2 or more journals.  Use code MEMDAY10.
