So, what is an Ancestor-Tree?
ANCESTOR-TREE is an inexpensive A1 sized piece of paper that allows you to create a poster showing the history of your family, effortlessly creating an easy way to share your story with your descendants.
We all have a wonderful story to share – of survival against the odds, of success and failure, and of being an important part of the society that we grew up in. Sometimes those stories can be lost – and just as the disappearance of a single species of animal is a tragedy, the failure to preserve our family’s many stories is arguably equally so. Unless we are careful, once gone, they are gone forever.
An Ancestor-Tree provides a canvas for you to fill up with pictures, dates, relationships, and stories, and then put it in a frame. The perfect Christmas present for the grandchildren, and the perfect way to pass the mantle on to the next generation.
