Family Tree Tops is unique. Created by a surveyor, engineer and artist, John Meng-Frecker has introduced a novel artistic approach to family trees. WordPress provides the perfect environment for showcasing art and blogging about genealogy. Our site is integrates with Pinterest. We conduct sale transactions on Etsy. Unique designs include branching geometry and square formats, which contrast the circular radial time-scale view of family trees. Here’s a quick video to watch.
Family Tree Tops takes a different look at family trees – from the top! By “looking down at genealogy”, contemporary cousins appear on adjacent branches of a descendant tree, growing and dividing into families from great grandparents in the center. This compact view solves the age-old problem of illustrating four generations with up to 300 individual names. We plot your family names on radial date circles every 10 or 20 years. To understand, we explore ideas for Living Family Trees and the Confluence of Current Time, two terms unique to Family Tree Tops. As well, we look at Google Photos for Genealogy, artistic photo galleries of backgrounds, WikiTree for genealogy, and hyperlinked family trees.
