#12DaysofGiveaways | i chart you, Family Circle

Please tell me you have seen Disney’s new movie Coco? We went to see it over the Thanksgiving holiday and I can’t stop saying all the nice things about it. I just loved the whole thing about remembering family and it made me think of another favorite brand I have – I Chart You.

Perfect Ideas for you Grandparents Gift Guide | The Modern DadI Chart You sells ready-to-print modern genealogy charts. All you have to do is:

  1. Select your desired print
  2. Choose either individual or couples format
  3. Place your order.
  4. You will get a confirmation email pointing you to their genealogy form.
  5. You will enter in your family names and specify what size you want.
  6. Within 3-5 business days you will get a ready-to-print file at the dimensions you specify
  7. Print it, hang it, and you’re done!

What I love most about this is not only how simple it was, but that it made me look up my family history. I was able to find my family tree on Family Search. This took me back at least seven generations. It was great because it had pictures of some of my late ancestors.

#12DaysofGiveaways | i chart you, Family Circle by The Modern DadAnother great thing about I Chart You is that you are decorating your house with part of your family history. We like to look at our fan chart regularly and talk about the names. Those names are connected to people that we are related to.

We love family names too. In fact, we have used family names when naming all three of our kids. My oldest middle name is the family traditional name (either first name or middle name) for the first boy to have. My daughter was named after her great-great-grandma. And my youngest son was named after his great grandpa. We learned this when we were creating our I Chart You fan chart.

For me, family is everything. To be able to put family names on the wall, a shelf in the kids room, or on the mantle I will do it. So thank you I Chart You for keeping my family in my memories.
