POC Family Tree Wedding Gift
This listing is for 2 extremely detailed and beautiful digital JPG files, featuring angels and people of color. You get two versions of this fabulous family history image as an instant download. I’m including one version in black and white that looks brand new (like it was made yesterday)! You also get a BONUS version that still has the look of an aged antique paper document, for lovers of antiques and vintage ephemera. A special quality about this image is all the little scenes of daily life, and the way that it seems fairly gender-neutral (with one almost androgynous angel).
This stunning image can be used as a marriage certificate, a family record page insert for genealogy books, or as a wedding gift to help a new couple celebrate the new family they are starting together. If the couple already has kids, it would be really neat to have the kids color this image in, either before or after presenting this as an anniversary or wedding gift.
HOW TO USE THIS
You can put the couple’s photographs in the two ovals at the top, or leave it blank and let the couple paste in images themselves. There is room to record marriage ceremony dates and information, and a place to document births and deaths of family members and ancestors.
Because Black Lives Matter, I’m restoring historical family record pages, posters, and prints that feature the history of people of color, in America and beyond. Most antique family register artwork shows only Anglo-Saxon people in the images, so I scoured the public record for high-quality historical documents. These have been restored to the colors I believe would have been used at the time, before the inks faded. Follow my shop for more of these documents. I’m adding new ancestry and genealogy printable art files all the time.
INSTANT DIGITAL DOWNLOAD = NOTHING WILL BE SHIPPED = NO WAIT TIME!
This is a high-quality digital download .jpg image file with blanks for names and photos of your family members. This is not a fillable file. It is made to be printed and filled in by hand.
THE IMAGERY INCLUDED IN THIS RARE EXAMPLE OF AMERICANA
This image shows the difference in the lives of families before and after the war. On the bottom left, there’s an image of life during slavery and, and on the right, it shows family life after emancipation. Granted, this is a pretty rose-colored view of history, but it was made in the 1800s.
I’ve also included a bonus SURPRISE PRESENT that will be available for instant download with your purchase.
PRINT IT ANY SIZE YOU LIKE!
It measures 2895 x 2269 pixels and looks beautiful printed on matte paper in any light color you choose! It is a .jpg image file.
HOW TO PRINT THIS DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
On your printer interface, just select “fit to page”, and it will print on whatever size paper you choose. You can bring the file to your local copy shop or upload it to your favorite print-on-demand website, and get as many copies as you like made, for non-commercial purposes.
GIFT IT AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE!
This would be a fabulous party favor for family reunions or baby showers. Because it’s downloadable, you can print this heirloom artwork out as many times as you like. Frame it or roll it up like a poster, and tie a ribbon around it, and you have the perfect gift for a new couple, grandparents, or a friend who loves researching their ancestry. If you’re homeschooling, you can use this as a colorful way to introduce your kids to the idea of family history!
