The Family Tree

Another after-dinner activity was compilation of a giant family tree. Before any guests arrived, I drew a huge tree trunk on a large strip of the newsprint which represented the great-great grandparents were Slovenians who immigrated from Austria. With my husband’s help I added branches for children and grandchildren. As young members circulated with their Family Finders they asked each person to write his or her name on a small piece of paper glued to appropriate branches of the big family tree. After the reunion I rolled and took the newsprint home and made small copies to send to all the relatives.
