Family Tree/ Christmas Tree

Christmas is a time for family, past & present.
As family genealogists we look for ways to share the past.

I look for small photo frames to hang on our tree.
I hang photos of ancestors & present family members.

Nieces & nephews like to find themselves on the tree.
While they are looking I point out ancestors & tell them stories.

These little frames also help me to feel like my parents & my grandparents 
are a part of our celebration of the holidays.

Make your tree a family tree.


  1. What a fabulous idea to "make your tree a family tree" for Christmas! Sharing family memories at holiday time weaves those ancestors into the heart of your celebration.
