Materials: 4095 ancestors, A 12 generation family tree index, Hardcover Family Tree Book, guided journal, family history
PERSONALIZED FAMILY TREE BOOKS
An archival family heirloom gift to pass to the next generation. This set of two hardcover family tree books are an excellent gift for a couple, allowing each to fill in their ancestry for the family's archive. This beautiful set is a great for parents, grandparents, retirees, and professional genealogists.
An additional page, with the content you have entered, will be inserted as the very first page of your books at the time they're printed. You can include things like your family saying, an introductory paragraph about your family history, a message to the recipient, a memorial statement or wedding congratulations, notes to future generations... anything you want! As long as it fits on one page. You can include this text in the personalization box when you order, or send text and a photo to me in an Etsy message. If you would like the text formatted a certain way, you can also send me a link to it in a Google Doc. Both books will have the same personalization text (and photo if you choose to include one), so please consider this when choosing your message.
*Please note that the book covers will not change. Personalization means that an extra page will be added with the content of your choice.
🌿 ABOUT THE BOOK 🌿

HOW IT WORKS
A numbered chart system makes it easy to see how the pages connect, and there are areas where you can write notes about any historical events that your family members may have experienced, witnessed, or survived. Generations 1-8 of your lineage have lines where you can enter information next to the following prompts: Name, Born, Died, Married [with 2 lines to record multiple marriages or charming details], and Notes. The 11th and 12th generations have room for only names and dates.
The first two generations of this paperback genealogy journal are gender-neutral/LGBTQAI+ friendly. The individuals in the first couple are each labeled "Parent" instead of Mother and Father. The first generation can be used to record an individual or a sibling group. There is an unstructured notes section, where you can write in partners/spouses, siblings, or any other personal information you wish to include.
🌿 THIS LISTING IS FOR A SET OF TWO HARDCOVER EDITIONS, EACH WITH THE SAME CUSTOM INTRO PAGE ADDED, FEATURING THE MESSAGE OF YOUR CHOICE. 🌿
🌿 ABOUT CUSTOM PERSONALIZATION 🌿
This special customized version of the book allows you to add a personal message to the first page of the book. An extra page will be added in and you can write whatever you want. You also have the option to add one black and white photograph above the text. The book will not be printed until you have sent me the text you want on your custom intro page, so please keep this in mind when it comes to shipping times.
The print house has recommended that you order by November 18th if you want this book to arrive in time for the holidays (in the U.S.). The print house does offer a faster option, but it's rather expensive. I offer it here, but if the time is cutting it very close, it may be more prudent to order from B&N without personalization.
Because this is a customized item, it is not returnable.
IF YOU WANT THE HARDCOVER EDITION, BUT DO NOT NEED PERSONALIZATION, YOU CAN GET IT FOR A LOWER PRICE AT BARNES AND NOBLE:
The additional cost for personalization is because of fees the print house charges for this service.

This book is just great. I’m actually afraid to write in it and ruin its perfection! You would think that we’d have companies already established that offer a format that can take a family tree up to 12 generations but so far only House Elves Anonymous offers us one- and in a tastefully simple layout too. My only regret is that I didn’t take advantage of the package deal that includes multiple books and digital downloads because for researchers like me, 12 generations still isn’t enough 🤓. I did not require customer service but they reached out to me regarding my shipment and expected delivery and of course it’s always nice to have that human quality. I was left to assume that if I had to connect with them, I would be well received. All in all, a great experience and I will be returning.
Absolutely beautiful. And such a good deal for how much is included. I’m blown away. Will definitely be back.
This remarkable family tree is not only beautiful but rich with detail and even a little bit of humor. We've used it to provide a rich context for a detailed conversation about family using Ponga so that detailed stories about individuals or links to photo collections can be directly associated with where each person fits on a family tree. I'm super jazzed about filling this out. One subtle detail I really like is the flexibility to allow for not only personal interests (like pets) but also non-hierarchical family relationships (stepchildren, adoptees, etc.) Rather than using PDF to add the names, I've gone straight into Canva where I can select from a range of typefaces and twist them to fit the rotation of the boxes. Beautiful!!
I don't think words can express how grateful I am to HouseElvesAnonymous! Sarah spent a huge amount of time working with me (and teaching me to fill in a spreadsheet...not easy for this girl) to create a custom poster of my family tree. She took my vision and turned it into a reality! The poster is one of the most beautiful gifts I have ever been able to give to my family! Thank you, Sarah, for all of your help, patience, and hard work! The Kulinski family is ever so grateful and this gift will be passed on for generations to come!
