Anyone who tried to visit https://familytreetops.com in the last few days may have been met with no graphics and frustration. I switched from Managed WordPress to cPanel. I understand most people are going the opposite direction but I needed to solve a problem. My issues came from wp-cron not operating properly – never has. Now I can put a decent cron together and get those scheduled events. I know… BORING.
Living Family Trees
So how ’bout something interesting. While wringing my hands over the Family Tree Tops website, a new idea dawned on me. I had written about the descendant quality of my top-down view of family trees and family tree art. It is a new, and I’m finding out rare, way to look at family trees. Mostly, family trees are ascendant; people look to see who their ancestors are, and that works well for programs by Ancestry.com. This seemed like a revelation, to me anyway. I bought https://livingfamilytrees.com url and made it a forward to https://familytreetops.com.
Family Tree Art for your Home
What’s missing is your living family. Because of privacy issues, you don’t get access to living people, unless you are in your private account. I would rather know, and show in art, who my current family is and where we came from. Going back as far as great grands is enough for me – that includes descendants as far as second cousins. It’s fun to show my children to whom they are related and how. See Wedding Days are Genealogy Days for our new additions to the family. While this makes a more current tree, it is for personal use and not networked to the world like deceased records are on many genealogy websites.
Where to go from Here
I hope to build a unique business with this idea. I think it’s fascinating and I hope you do as well. Please share. Cheers!
