If you’re not on Facebook or haven’t been on in a few days then you might not know anything about #mycolorfulancestry frenzy created by J. Paul Hawthorne. He created a 5-generation a colorful pedigree chart but instead of adding the usual information he decided to put his ancestors birthplaces. Towards the end of last week all I saw were color pedigree trees on my timeline, I soon jumped on the bandwagon and input my ancestors information. From My Colorful Ancestry chart you can see I have strong Alabama roots going back to the 1800s, my siblings and I are first generation New Yorkers.
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.
