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.

What an absolutely wonderful idea........I hope you don't mind but I may have to "honestly" "steal" your idea. Have a wonderfully blessed Christmas.
