Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

Shades of the Departed has a really neat Friday From The Collectors post today! Chart Chick Janet Hovorka of Generations Maps has presented some examples of the type of genealogy charts that Generations Maps can produce, and they are awesome! These are not the usual descendent or pedigree looks. Janet has incorporated old family photos into these very distinctive charts to create some really spectacular images:

“This lady focused on the family of 7 girls and one brother down the center right of this chart. To their right are the parents and grandparents. Then for each of the 8 children, she did a separate chart where she enlarged one of the 8 children, added that child’s spouse(s) and then put their descendants to the left. She added wedding, group and house pictures at the bottom right for each family…”

My own favorite is Janet’s matriarchal line:

Janet has presented some really great gift ideas, and Christmas is only 152 days away!
