Some people have asked “Where can I find my GEDCOM”? GEDCOM or GEnealogy Data COMmunications files are available for download in Ancestry.com or MyHeritage.com and most every genealogy software. It is an ASCII text file detailing your families names and relationships. You will want to keep this secure, especially if you have living members “checked on” during the output setup. Family Tree Tops uses your GEDCOM data file to capture names when building the graphic design in our unique top-down view.
Our design is a compact format suitable for wall art and takes on the dendritic branching pattern of a tree growing outward from the trunk. Our trees are LIVING family trees. They are NOT meant for publishing online, rather for your personal use and wall art. We use your ancestor or wedding photos or our beautiful background images and art. Circles radiating from the center establish a radial time scale in decades. Family members from the GEDCOM are plotted by date on the time scale along the branch of their family descending from great grandparents in the center.
Genealogy is… Keeping Track of Your Family
Family is extremely important to people, especially in this time of COVID19. Having a family tree is a special way to show your children how they fit-in, and how they are related to the people you love. Not all family trees look like trees, but ours do. Family Tree Tops’ unique design looks down at the top of your tree. With your great grandparents as the tree trunk in the middle, their children are the main branches, spreading out into families. Cousins appear side-by-side in a compact format. Time rings rippling from the center are the radial scale of decades as families grow. We custom make each project using your GEDCOM data which you can download from Ancestry or MyHeritage or other genealogy software.
There are many beautiful backgrounds to choose from. You can place an ancestor photo, a wedding photo, or just some cool art or photography behind the tree. The high resolution combination of top-down family tree graphics and art/photography is perfect for wall art in your home.
