Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2009 - Reference - 48 pages

This elegant, one-of-a-kind family tree is certain to become a treasured heirloom.

The centerpiece of this delightful gift package is a beautiful, carefully scrolled 11” x 14” tree illustration commissioned from a noted Italian artisan who specializes in wood engravings. It comes with 200 leaf and branch illustrations to cut and paste on the drawing: each ?leaf” represents a family member, while the connecting branches indicate that person's relationship with the rest of the family.

In addition, a 48-page book, The Art of Our Ancestry, explains how to ?grow” a family tree, take those first steps, and place the family members on the tree. A list of Web resources and advice on lesser-known places to find information round out this helpful guide.
