17 Creative Family Tree Ideas

A few generations ago, it wasn’t unusual to spend your whole life in one geographic area, along with the majority of your family. These days, our world has grown increasingly more widespread and most of us are on the lookout for ways to connect with our family near and far. Once you have kids, it may become even more important to you to share your family stories, history, and genealogy. A family tree is a crafty way to organize information about your ancestry and pass on the family history.

Whether it’s for a school project, a gift to a relative, or simply for your own edification, Personal Creations has you covered with several family tree options to meet your desired style. Don’t forget to check out their blog to download the printables.
