Filled in by hand, calligraphy, or type, and hand-colored in pen or paint, each of these family trees is guaranteed to be unique, and each illustration-whether elegant, whimsical, or just plain folksy-is a joyful celebration of your family. Uses for it are limited only by your imagination.
You can photo-reduce the family trees for use as note cards and stationery, or you can enlarge them to show family detail at its optimum.Remember that each of these family trees is an ancestral tree. The tree starts with you, and each generation back doubles in size, showing two parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, etc.
You'll have a great time with these illustrations, and you can pass them on finished or unfinished, to be treasured as keepsakes or to be embellished and completed by others.

My husband was given one of the charts from this book professionally finished and framed by his mother. We have it hanging with pride in our front room. The chart is just one of many different styles to choose from. There are elegant and large ones which hold seven generations and you would need to enlarge. There are also smaller four and five generation charts which could either be enlarged or not. Some are romantic and I have used them as wedding gifts. I get the bride and grooms info and present the finished piece. I promise you you will be all set for treasured wedding gifts from now on with just a little investment of time and decorating to the chart. There are also childrens charts. Boys like the castle theme. Girls like the flowers. You can copy these on to parchment or speckled card stock, decorate and frame. I have used these with womens groups, youth groups, geneology buffs and newbies. Everyone loves making their own chart. JUST DON"T EVER LEND YOUR COPY OUT! Only drawback is that these are hand drawn and some have a slight slant to them. Just a little wiggling on the copier helps that though. Get the book and some sparkly gel pens, and a good quality lettering pen and you are all set. Please note the charts are for personal consumption and not to be resold.
