I had a Kindergarten teacher in 1956 Miss Burkholder. She taught at Dovercourt School in Toronto, Ontario. I was five and loved her so much. Is she in your tree?

I'm afraid I have no idea!

This is very cool Lorine! Do you have instructions or a template that you'd be willing to share??

Hi Penny

I don't have a template. I just used WORD and typed in my surnames until I had the shape tree I wanted. Then I highlighted each surname and made the text whatever colour suited me

Then I did a screenshot of the image and imported it into my graphic program (Pixelmator)

For the star on top and the presents on the bottom I found public domain images and inserted them into the image in Pixelmator to create my final version tree graphic.
