Creating Family Trees for Your Scrapbooks!

Hey Everyone!!

I have been busy working on a custom scrapbook for a 50th Anniversary gift, and one of the things my customer wanted was a family tree. Never having been involved in the genealogy side of scrapping, I wanted to find a program that would allow me to create a simple family tree that would be printable and look good in a scrapbook!

I found a great site that offers a free download to help you organize your genealogical information and make pretty family trees for your books, or for school projects, etc!

The site is called My Heritage, and has free downloadable software called Family Tree Builder4.0 to help you build your family trees in a variety of formats and styles. It is very user friendly and I had fun selecting the various fonts and styles that would meet my customer's needs, and look great on a scrapbook page.
It almost ( that is almost - I absolutely CANNOT get involved in genealogy!!!!) got me going on my own - but I will be encouraging the kids to use it next time they do a family tree project for school!
Check it out - it might just capture your imagination and spark an interest in your family history!!
Happy Day everyone!
