How do you pass on thousands of vital records of members of your family back to the 12th generation (late 16th century)? In a book! After an intensive research of my ancestors I wanted to bring this knowledge now also to my family clearly.

At just under 200 pages, the book about my father’s ancestors generated great enthusiasm within my family. I was able to find out about many previously unknown strokes of fate from the two world wars. Military records brought one or two character traits to light, and my great-great-great-great-grandmother’s will from 1628 was particularly interesting.

The family chronicle should be clear for a layman and the different generations should be easily recognizable. The interest should be maintained until the last page. Therefore, the books were supplemented with graphics – which not only help to get an overview, but are also a real eye-catcher in the book. Printed out as a poster, the graphics are a hit at any family celebration and framed in a suitable frame a representative eye-catcher in your own four walls. Connecting one’s own family history with European history also yielded exciting insights into one’s own past.
