Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: Make a Surname Christmas Tree

For this week’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun challenge, I guess I was a step ahead of Randy Seaver on Genea-Musings.

This week’s challenge:

Back in 2013, Leslie Ann had a post on her Ancestors Live Here blog last year titled Wordless Wednesday — Surname Christmas Tree which I thought was a great idea for an SNGF challenge on a Surname Saturday.  We did it in 2014 last – see here!  Are you game?
1)  Read Leslie Ann’s post, and figure out how you could make something similar to hers, or to mine below, or even something different.
2)  Make your Surname Christmas Tree using your ancestral surnames – there’s no limit on the number of surnames – and decorate your tree as you wish.
3)  Show us your Surname Christmas Tree and tell us how you made it in a blog post of your own, in a Facebook post.  Please leave a comment here so we can all see your creation.
I mentioned I was a step ahead of Randy this week because I created a surname tree and posted it on 1 December. I used Word and then took a screen shot of it to put it into my blog.
To add a little more Christmas cheer to this post – and not repost from earlier this month, I’ve added a few of my favorite vintage Christmas postcards. Most pre-date World War I.
Ho! Ho! Ho!
Merry Christmas!
Thank you, Randy, for this week’s challenge. I’m already trying to figure out how to make a fancier tree for next year.
