The Girl With The Family History Tattoo
« on: Saturday 08 June 19 11:03 BST (UK) »
I have recently written a couple of articles with regards to the different ways in which we can present our family history work both visually and physically. Rather than just pages of cold data, how can we bring our trees to life more.

I wrote this blog and found the story very emotional, very interesting and also very inspiring and thought it was something that others might be interested in. Hopefully some of you might like the story. Thanks

I have personal experience of this. I have regular INR blood tests at the local surgery. I noticed that one of the two nurses had a tattoo all up her left arm. I asked and she explained it was her family tree. I was intrigued and delighted.

Thanks for sharing that, until recently it was something g that I had not even considered, certainly food for thought

You've got another arm.

Can't be much worse than the name of a previous partner for a tattoo  ::)

My great grandfather, who died in the First World War at Gallipoli had the tatto “I love F.Bevens” on his left arm (taken from his military papers), shame is, F.Bevens wasn’t my great Nan. :o
