Customer Spotlight: Beautiful Genealogy Charts

Family ChartMasters is absolutely thrilled to offer genealogy charts that become focal points in our customers' homes. We recently designed a genealogy chart for Kathy from Arizona who turned it into a beautiful art piece.  Displayed on a large easel, she had it framed and matted in a gorgeous ornate gold frame that complements her home decor. 

Kathy loved her chart so much that she decided to have Family ChartMasters create a posterity chart for her mother, Pat.  This memorable chart included Pat and her husband, and all their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren with many family and individual photos on the chart to keep her loved ones close.

Family ChartMasters' genealogy charts make excellent gifts for the holidays.  Let us know when you submit your file for the free consultation that your chart will be a gift. We can then size it for standard frame sizes.  Let us do the designing and printing, then all you have to do is wrap it, and enjoy the smiles when your loved ones receive your gift of family history love.
