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.
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.

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.
Okay this is my last post about my blueprint pedigree tree I promise 🙂 I just wanted to share a photo of what my blueprint tree looks like in a floating frame.
I printed out my grandfather’s pedigree chart and it looks pretty damn good if I say so myself.
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.
I’ve created a creative and simple (well I think it’s creative :0) pedigree diagram for my grandmother’s family.
Turning my passion into a business, helping others discover their roots one branch at a time.
We are family! But how are we actually related? Connecting my DNA relatives to my family tree, this should be interesting.
