    Oh, that chart is just beautiful- what a great gift idea! For so many years my mom’s side of the family tree was blank, and now I’m still discovering just how many ancestors (some actually kinda famous) we share. I have a new appreciation for the power of genealogy to make me feel connected to my own history and the history of the world.

      Hi Pene

      I do love it. I could see it filled in and framed on the wall – so beautiful. Genealogy is a wonderful way to connect with where you are from.

    Now here are some interesting gifts! My oldest sister would love the unofficial guide to workbook. I’m just curious. Why do you think people are so concerned about their ancestry all of a sudden? This has taken the world by storm in the last 15 years or so.

      Hi Shalisha

      I think genealogy has always been a popular hobby, however, instead of people being elbow deep in archives and libraries trying to find their elusive ancestor the internet has opened up the world. You can post a question and have someone the other side of the world answer it. I have found cousins, whom I will be meeting later this year, on The internet has made the world a much smaller place.
