I too have gone the scrapebook route - only so you can add more pages if need be.  I wanted to show my children where we come from.  Originally my Mum wanted to find out who her Father was! and it started with getting her original birth cert. sadly she died last year but was really interested in how things were going - I just wish she had seen how far I've come now -from only my Mum and my children I've found 179 relatives!!
I especially wanted my children to be interested and so included photos (only a few) but also used ebay and got old postcards of the areas that the people were living.  Most postcards are only 1 - 2 and really bring the scrapebook to life!

This thread is fascinating, and I should have realised that my recent chatty query had been gone over, in depth, many times before!

Thanks to all who contributed here, I have now got a little list to help me proceed.

BTW, as my project unites many parts of Europe I will probably insert little flags in too.

Make sure the flags are relevant to the history, though!
European borders changed all the time; as did the flags ;D ;D

Absolutely..... getting a suitable map is posing a bit of a problem too.
