    Entire autobiography due on May 10th in final form.  Your child will need a scrapbook to put this in.  Include pictures and the family tree in the final form.  Family tree does not have to go back a long ways.  Just go back as far as you know!  Can include title pages for each section and a title page at the very beginning.  Be creative!
