I’m a sucker for all things sentimental and personal. My Tree and Me creates modern genealogy posters that are modern heirlooms. Imagine receiving one of these the day your child is born, your wedding day or even for Mother’s Day. Each print is created on acid-free watercolor paper, the paper has a wonderful weight to it and is definitely ready to stand the test of time. My maternal grandmother spent years of her life researching her genealogy and then my paternal grandparents caught on and did the same doing all of my work for me. My husband’s family, however, hasn’t done all the research yet. My Tree and Me has some tips and great links on their site here to help you get started. Their Super Mod Tree and Birds of a Feather show 4 generations. Petals Aplenty, Minimalist Octopus and Slice of Life move to 5 generations and Proud as a Peacock Tree has 6. If you’ve really done your homework, Slice of Life has a whopping 7 generations. I love the look of the customized prints, but if you’d love to add names as you go along on your research adventure, three of their prints are available as D.I.Y. posters that come along with a practice copy.
