Who was on the deed to your original family home? What's written on your great aunt's headstone? How did your grandfather sign his name? These intriguing family details can be lost over time. But adding visual elements to your tree preserves and enriches your history for generations to come.
Your ancestors were living, breathing people. And they left behind visual cues to their lives, like photographs, documents and stories. When you add these details to your tree family, the history you share is more exciting and complete.
