Item details

Family Tree Notebook fill-in-the-blank-template is easy to personalize for gifts or leave blank to be completed by recipients. Perfect for last-minute gifts with instant download! Convenient to have on hand when you need gift ideas for babies, men or women, for upcoming occasions such as shower, wedding, anniversary, birthday, baptism, holiday, Christmas, Thanksgiving family reunion or anytime, just-for-fun. Unique, beautiful heirloom gifts are extra-special for new baby, bride/groom, parents, grandparents, mother/father-in-law, relatives, teachers and friends. Take notes while you learn about ancestors. Keep track of genealogy with this digital organizer journal. It’s all about collecting, saving and passing on the ancestry history of one child or a group of siblings (brothers/sisters). This file is a perfect tool to gather all the random bits and pieces of the past and compile them into one beautiful keepsake to cherish.

Many people have quite a few unknowns because of lost records; that’s okay—spaces can be left blank and filled in later if research is done gradually. The meaningful and important thing to do is to enter or write down what is known now before it is forgotten. Future generations will appreciate knowing about their roots.

Enjoy this fun, useful pdf form to help preserve facts: names, dates, places; and also write about personal memories. Each branch of the family tree holds people who shaped and formed every unique individual born. Predecessors’ experiences are interesting. The Spirit inspires faith, gives life, thankfulness, joy and growth through forefathers and mothers as they teach us about good character virtues, hard work ethic, perseverance in tough times and lessons from mistakes. Our physical appearance is inherited from their biological DNA. Precious moments are those spent gathering stories about lives of loved ones. We celebrate those who gave us life and love us. We honor our elders by asking questions to concisely organize their biographical outline—a heritage story to pass on to next generations of children and grandchildren.

Ideas for interview topics (these are listed on cover):

1. First memory about your childhood?
2. Oldest relative you remember?
3. Education — favorite teacher/subjects?
4. Vocation — places worked, favorite job?
5. Hobbies or sports you enjoy?
6. Favorite book, music or entertainment?
7. Siblings — brothers and sisters?
8. Travel, immigration, places lived?
9. Life stories, happiest and sad times?
10. Faith — people who helped you?
11. Favorite quote or verse?
12. How did you celebrate holidays?
13. How did you meet your spouse?
14. Wedding or childbirth memories?
15. Hopes and advice for young people?
16. Health/medical challenges?
17. Subsequent marriage information?
18. What else could we talk about?

Doctors often inquire about genetic health issues of grandparents or their cause of death (see number 16 above).

Family Tree Notebook is available in TWO formats! Both the print and electronic versions are described below (A and B) for your convenience and help with preference. If you purchase both editions, you may utilize all the benefits of each type; work with one before the other or both simultaneously.

(A) Print Edition [NOT THIS LISTING, but available at https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/250997857/family-tree-notebook-print-edition ]. When you order physical paperback books, they will be sent in the mail with FreshRetroGallery gift tags. They can be drop-shipped directly to your gift recipients. This print version allows taking notes with pen or pencil and becomes a wonderful keepsake of handwriting. No computer knowledge is necessary. The print edition is the best choice for a physical item to put in a stocking or wrap for under the tree. It’s excellent for weddings or the traditional first year anniversary “paper” gift when a couple plans to have children. The 64-page-plus-cover book measures 5.5 x 8.5", a convenient size to carry or tuck in a hand bag to bring along when visiting family and relatives. The saddle-stitched paperback book is printed on acid-free archival quality text and cover stock. The paper is a designer favorite for superior performance. The “Natural” color is a warm shade of ivory, cream or off-white. The exceptional paper quality is easy to write on and enhances print with a touch of distinction. Cougar is honored to be the premier member of the Domtar EarthChoice® family of products, is FSC® Certified, SFI® Certified Sourcing and Rainforest Alliance Certified™. Featuring 10% post consumer recycled content and certified fiber, it’s the optimal environmental choice.

Introductory Special on Print Edition:
Buy-1-get-1-Free Family Tree Notebook
Order 1 to get 2.
Order 2 to get 4.
Order 3 to get 6.
Order 4 to get 8.

Free Shipping on larger quantities of Family Tree Notebooks (the price of the Family Tree Notebooks is the same for any quantity). The Free Shipping deal is available only when you contact me to request a “custom listing”. I will send you a special link to order from. Minimum quantity is 5/10 in USA and International minimum is 6/12. Please request the custom link before ordering because this offer is not available when ordering from a standard listing where shipping is automatically added. Time varies from a few minutes to a day or so for your custom link to be created and sent to you.

(B) Ebook Edition: [THIS LISTING, an instant digital download—no physical item will be sent.] A common pdf form file allows you to easily fill out the form fields with your own information text and “save as” your personal file. It requires basic computer knowledge, software and equipment. You may choose to place the pdf into your own layout-program software such as inDesign® to add digital images. In Acrobat®, the form fields may be highlighted with purple tint areas which show on screen but do not print. You may click “Highlight Fields” to turn it off and on. Acrobat Reader is the recommended PDF viewer to open and interact with this form. Last time I checked, it was available as a free download from Adobe.com. I don’t know if other software is available and compatible. The 33 page 11" x 8.5" file is 2.7 MB. With this listing of the digital Ebook Edition, you get the downloadable file and rights for personal use only (not for commercial use). The file is always available from your Etsy receipt. You may download it to your computer to save it. The ebook can be given as a personal gift to several people and it may be helpful to offer an ebook edition to the same people you give print edition books as gifts. The ebook sample shown is printed on fine natural parchment-style paper, sold separately, available here: https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/237086026/blank-paper-60-pieces-fine-natural

“Excellent way to provide all the extra detail to go with the matching wall chart. I got the printable version of the booklet so I could type up the basics and personalise a copy for my relatives. Prints fine on Australian A4 paper if auto-resized to fit.” — customer review by lielle

Simple to use:

The cover of Family Tree Notebook has a chart illustrated with numbers which match-up to the circled numbers on the pages. Put the youngest generation child (or siblings) on number one; add the father’s side of the family on number 4–33; begin the mother’s side on number 34–63. Even circled numbers are for fraternal information (men). Odd circled numbers are for the maternal lineage (females). 2-page spreads of the optional open-print-edition book show each couple’s information on the left-and-right-hand pages (This Ebook edition has spreads laid out as single 11 x 8.5" pages and back/front cover combined on the first page).

A blank page is available for anything you may choose to add, located on the first page after the front cover, across from number one. My example shows this space filled with Bible verses, Lord’s Prayer, and a paragraph crediting the authors and information source. This space can be left blank or a personal message to the gift recipient could be written here—whatever you want.

Family Tree Notebook provides the ability to record ancestry of six generations on 63 spots:
1. One child or group of siblings (at the bottom of the chart)
2. Two parents—one mother, one father
3. Four grandparents
4. Eight great grandparents
5. 16 great great grandparents
6. 32 great great great grandparents
Serious genealogists may continue the history of 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 generations and beyond by mentioning people from other generations in the “other information” area or by adding more volumes. Read more about adding charts (book volumes) here https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/63987573/33-blank-family-tree-charts-for-6-or-up . This link talks about how to create a library of 33 charts (or booklets).

Men and women enjoy recording family history as a remembrance of loved ones. Descendants receive positive benefits by understanding sacrifices others have made. Knowledge of the past provides a sense of responsibility, self-esteem and courage to make changes. Collecting information satisfies those questions of where you came from. It’s an inexpensive activity because references are available through brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, loved ones, internet, churches, governmental archives, historical societies, genealogy organizations and libraries. It’s a good way to connect to the people in your present as well as your past. Genealogy is considered by some to be the fastest-growing hobby in the North America. Search for websites and Facebook Groups and you will see that millions of people are interested in finding ways to locate family or friends with whom they had lost touch. It’s worldwide and crosses cultures and faiths.

This template needs a little work... when editing, it does not allow you to stay on the line...and the editing tools are not intuitive. I do love the concept and the layout of design!
