Family Trees

General Info

There are many different layouts which can be used. Family Tree Scriptorium aims to do more than record names and dates (computer printouts can do this). We lead the way in creating a visually exciting picture of the family's history, by incorporating graphics (by hand) such as coat-of-arms, portraits, signatures, medals, maps, sketches of family homes, photos and potted biographies of particular family members.

These features put "flesh on the bones" and make the family history relevant and interesting to anyone who views it, especially the younger generation for whom the picture can carry a thousand words.
