23andme Family Tree BETA

Have you taken a 23andme DNA test? Have you tested out Family Tree? 23andme Family Tree is fairly new function that has been added to the site.

I was playing around with my tree last night and I was able to connect the dots with a couple of my DNA cousins, but I am going to need a little more help from some of my DNA cousins to figure out our connection. I sent a few messages last night so hopefully they get back to me and are able to fill in some holes.

If you have tested it out the Family Tree let me know your thoughts.

Every Family Foundation Starts With A Blueprint

Customize a memorable gift for a loved one.

These blueprints are the foundation to your family’s history.

Purchase Physical, Digital or Both

Physical Charts:
Each customized 5 generation blueprint pedigree charts are printed on quality 8.5×14 card stock from Cut Card stock. (Frame Not Included)

Digital Charts:
A digital copy (uneditable) will be emailed.

*Personal information is only used for the purpose of constructing the blueprint chart* No information is sold or distributed

We will send you a pedigree chart to fill out. Please provide all the information you want on your blueprint chart ( names, dates, locations). Please keep in mind the more names you have, the smaller the font on the blueprint will be — which may make it harder to read. We recommend up to 5 generations.

We will begin customizing your chart after payment. Turnaround time depends on how quickly we receive family information. After we create the chart, we will send it back to you for proofing. Once you have proofed we will create the final chart and ship it to you. If you prefer a digital copy, we will create the digital copy and send you a PDF file through email.

Private or Public?

ancestry

Last Friday night I decided to stay in and surf ancestry.com I stumbled upon a tree for my grandfather. To my surprise the owner of the tree had the same exact information I had on my tree for my grandfather, his siblings and some of his relatives. My first thought was, was the owner a relative of mine? The next thought was why didn’t the owner contact me? When I say the same information, I mean the owner even had my pictures, like a copy and paste tree. I am all for sharing, that’s why I leave my trees public, I want to contact with possible relatives. But I now understand why some folks make their trees private, why they don’t disclose everything detail about a relative or why some even put wrong information about a family member on purpose. When I find my ancestors or relatives in someone else’s tree, I reach out to the owner of that tree, most get back to me but a few don’t but I still reach out. Well I reached out and found out the owner of the tree is doing research for a number of people and the owner said one of the folks their researching for is possibly related to the people on my tree. This still makes me think, why didn’t the owner of the tree contact me to see what information or to see if it was accurate? Maybe the owner was and I just beat them to it or maybe the owner and or person whom they were researching for was satisfied with the information that was on my tree. I am wondering is there a thing as family tree etiquette? Even if your tree is public should someone have to ask you to add an ancestor or relative on their tree? Should they ask you to use your pictures? Is it free range since your tree is public? Since this little incident it has made me think twice about making my tree public on ancestry. I did the work in finding these documents, creating my tree and even adding pictures and someone takes what I did without a word is a little wrong to me.

My Passion

“We need to haunt the house of history and listen anew to the ancestors wisdom.” –

Maya Angelou 

Like many of you, genealogy is my passion. I can not explain how glad I am I stumbled onto it, I can only hope my ancestors are happy with the work that I am doing.

A Pedigree Tree Revisited

I always try to find creative ways to display my family history and get my family interested and involved, whether it be through family charts, videos, pictures or newsletters. I actually don’t want to just reach my family but inspire others to dive into researching their roots.  I created this pedigree tree a year and a half ago, I found new information but I didn’t save the file as a psd. (allows me to edit the file in photoshop) so I wasn’t just simply able to edit it, I had to recreate the whole document so   I put it off for over a year. There are slight difference to the new chart to the old one but I think this chart looks just as good. The moral of this post is to save, save, save, and oh yeah think outside the box for displaying your family history. jessie cox blueprint pedigree
