A Family History Gift

Although the holiday season is over, there are plenty of special occasions throughout the year.  I thought I’d share a family history related gift that I mad for my husband.

It’s a family tree that links both of our families, going back to our great-great-grandparents.  Using Microsoft Visio, I designed it to fit a 20” x 16” standard frame.  I had it printed at Staples, framed it, and gave it to my husband for Christmas.

I wanted to keep it simple and clean.  The idea here was to illustrate the bond between Jim and I, and that because of that bond, our families became one.  I wasn’t concerned with dates and places…just who our ancestors are.  This same idea would make a great wedding anniversary gift.
