What’s a Photo Without the Story?

At last, a clear, easy to read, and engaging book that will help you uncover the stories hiding in your family photo collection. Hazel brings to life her own stories and takes the mystery out of genealogy research. This book is an excellent resource for anyone ready to tackle this project and meets the promise Hazel makes in her introduction: “I’ve never met a person who didn’t have a story worth telling. Everyone has a story, and this book will help you tell yours!”

  3. Hazel! This is SO exciting!! And such a perfect fit for your authorship. Yes, PLEASE include me in your distribution wait list. I will need three copies! People need this! Thank you!

      • Somehow I missed the publication date. Just listened to you on the Declutter Hub podcast (episode 189) and bought your book, Matt Paxton’s, and Cathi Nelson’s immediately. Planning on listening again because I *think* you mentioned Maureen Taylor’s books as well, and there are possibly others I missed, too. Have already told two people who have podcasts that they should reach out to you to be on their shows! Tonight is Saturday and your book doesn’t come until Monday. Sigh.

        • Wonderful! I’m so glad you liked the podcast, Christine. That’s a nice selection of books (yep, including Maureen Taylor’s). Thanks for spreading the word, and for letting me know!

  4. Absolutely loved the book! Could not put it down! So Inspiring! Thank you Hazel for re-igniting my passion for getting my Legacy put together for my family! I was overwhelmed but qm fired up yo tackle my project once again. I have multi family inherited pictures as well as my own..now with 4 grown boys and 8 grandbabies. I’m super excited to start working on my pictures again! As well as all of the memories and keepsakes that go with them. Thank you!
