So I'm working on putting together a memorial page for all the people in my family.. however I guess my brain is just shot and I'm stumped as to what else to put on it.

Our Family Memorial
Is what I started. It just seems too plain to me. I wanted to do individual pages for everyone but for example, the first two I dont know much about, not enough to write anything on a page for them, nor do I have pictures them!

Any ideas? Also maybe some nice poetry anyone knows of. I cant find anything I like.

I think I'd have an email address and ask people to send me any photos and stories they may have of the person to add to the page. And perhaps do a mini-family tree showing siblings/parents/children so people can see the relationships. Of course, I'm into geneaology and love to trace the family history so those are things I get excited about! Pictures, personal stories, family relationships, are all really helpful when putting together the pieces of the family and so great for future generations who will only know these people based on what was written about them

Beautiful page.

I like the thought of family submissions. Ask people not only to send pictures but to tell you one or two of their favorite memories.
