Now my Christmas Tree Project is complete, or as complete as it is going to be for the time being, it is time to think about what I am going to do next with it, apart from stop calling it the Christmas Tree Project.
I like having a visual representation of my ancestry, so I think I will probably carry on and try to fill in the next row of ancestors. These are my 5 x great-grandparents, and I already have 69 out of 128 identified with varying degrees of detail.
There are of course many details still to fill in, some of the details I have are quite sparse, and there are more ancestors still alive at the time of the 1911 census to be found than I previously thought.
Three of my 4x great-grandparents are still missing, and one wife still has no maiden name, so finding those are a priority.
Finding my 5x great-grandparents however is not going to be top priority, I will probably be focusing more on specific branches and families in specific locations next year, rather than trying to find all of that generation.
Now I know how to get a chart printed, and how straight-forward it is, I will try and get it updated on a regular basis, perhaps every couple of months, tweaking and fiddling with the text in the boxes and fine tuning the layout as I go along.
