Genealogy through Artwork

 We recently moved, which gave us a great chance to dig out a lot of artwork and photographs from storage.  It also gave me a chance to be a bit creative in displaying the family artwork.  This "family tree" below was arranged my my daughter on our bedroom wall.  I love it!

Ignore the messy bed, we were walking all
over it to arrange the photos! 

This is the kit I bought at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
I added more photos, and didn't use all the parts of the kit.
You could also make similar branches out of black card stock
or cut out of plywood with a jigsaw, and then painted black.

More genealogy art! 
These two paintings now hang in my office.
They are Vincent's maternal grandmother's home in
the village of Villar de Ciervo, Salamanca, Spain

These four wedding photos hang between my
 new kitchen and dining room.  
Three generations of happy couples!

These portraits of my mother and father-in-law
now grace our dining room.
They are some of the artwork we moved from Puerto Rico.
