May We Show Off Your Genealogy Chart?

I've been asked to speak at RootsTech 2016 and the title of my lecture is "Voila: 101 Ways to Design a Pedigree Chart." After 10 years of speaking on all different topics, it's nice to feel recognized that we really know what we are talking about when it comes to genealogy charts.

We've designed some magnificent charts over the years and I've always been a little bit shy about asking permission to share your chart because it's so personal--it's your family.  But now I'm asking! If we've done a chart for you and you would permit me to share it as part of the slideshow at my RootsTech presentation, please email me at  To protect your privacy, our company policy is to always change the personal information of any living people. 

Compared to how many we've printed in the last 11 years, 101 charts is a drop in the bucket, but I'm hoping our clients will help me put this slideshow together.  We want to show off our best work.  Let me know if you can help me with this presentation.  Not only would we love to share your chart, but we would also love to see your pictures of what you've done with your chart and how you have displayed it.  Send your photos to

You have never done any work for me but I would love to see your presentation about family charts. Will you have it put online so others who do not attend the conference can benefit? Thanks, Jo Simpson
