Family Tree

3 foot by 2 foot digital graphic project for my Lamont family tree and our history back to Scotland. Since discovering my ancestors came over from Scotland and landed in Puslinch, Ontario as the first pioneer family in that area - I have been bitten with the ancestry bug! Luckily there was alot written down of their lives and adventures in the 1800's and Puslinch historians have kept these stories well documented. The tree once completed will be printed on canvas stock and framed for my Father's cabin wall in B.C. Alot of work was put in searching for family photos and dates - but will be worth it in the end! If your in need of family tree graphics, contact me for pricing.
