My grandfather was a genealogist and I didn't fall very far from the tree when it comes to a love for history, but I've always been more into the history of architecture and design than genealogy (not that I'm unaware of my family's history. My grandfather made sure that I memorized a couple of centuries worth of family members...) I was thrilled when I came across Jenn O'Neill's modern genealogy charts which merge my grandfather's passion with my love of modern design and allow me to proudly display my family history in a way that still meshes with my aesthetic.
Not only do I want one for myself, but these would make great gifts too! A very unique option for a baby shower or wedding present, or even a birthday. Don't know the person well enough to do some digging about relatives? Opt for a gift certificate or the DIY version of a chart where the recipient can fill in the names.
