Ideas for family tree poster

Family tree posters put important information about your ancestors front and centre. Birth dates, death dates and marriage dates are all arranged on the poster, as are photographs. You may not find images for everyone in your family, especially for previous generations, but a few photographs help flesh out the family tree. Use family tree poster ideas to create a display for your next family reunion or just to display your history around the house.

Family Timeline

As you work on your family tree, identify specific dates that are of importance. Some dates might include when ancestors were born or married, the day your first family member immigrated to America, and when the family moved to a new city or state. Also, make note of major events that your family was a part of, such as family members who served in World War II or relatives who helped during the Civil War. Turn those dates into a poster that shows a timeline of major events. The timeline itself is just a long line, with different decades or years identified in order. Add lines that shoot off from the main line and write in the different family events there. You can even add photos, if you have them.

Photo Family Tree

A photo family tree is very similar to a traditional family tree, with photos of different members on the branches. Start by sketching out a large tree on poster board or a large sheet of paper. The top branches are reserved for ancestors or the oldest members of your family, depending on how far back you go. The lower branches are for the younger family members. Identify each family member on the tree and add a photo to the appropriate branch. Add family members' birth dates above or below their names, with the dates of their deaths listed, if possible. Go over everything with a dark pen or marker, but only after you verify the dates and spellings of names.

World Map Tree

A world map tree gives you the chance to identify where your ancestors are from. You need to apply a map of the world to a piece of poster board or a large sheet of paper. Alternatively, draw the map onto the poster. Identify the places where your ancestors come from, by colouring in those countries and labelling names and dates on each one. If you have a large family, add names to the top of the poster, with an arrow pointing to the appropriate country.
