I can not believe how perfect the trees are!
I love them so so much, got very emotional looking at them just now. Thank you so much, you are a real talent and I love them!
James (August 2023)
In 2015 I began taking commissions for handwritten family trees in calligraphy.
Since then, thousands of people in the UK and worldwide have purchased my family tree designs.
Whether your family tree is extensive, with many generations reaching through decades, or simple, with just a few family members, I can transform it into a piece of artwork for you.
What an amazing gift to give my mother for her 80th birthday. It arrived on time, and was so beautifully done. A really unusual and tasteful gift. Would highly recommend!
Starting your research: first steps in ancestry
If you’re looking to discover your family tree going back generations, there is a ton of information online to help you. If it’s bewildering at first, there’s some thoughtful advice on Ageuk.org.uk which might help you navigate your way into the world of genealogy.
You’ll need to be organised, and willing to take on a project (depending how much research you’re looking to do!) – but they say “a large part of the fun is about sharing research and stories” – and you’ll discover your family history might overlap with other people’s – you could discover long lost relatives and branches of your family you never knew existed!
The perfect present. Found the family tree print and decided it was the perfect gift for an upcoming 90 year old birthday. The option to place the names where you chose was straight forward, the offer of one proof was very appreciated and we were not disappointed. The print is beautifully created, the freedom to chose your words at the bottom and to the side makes it all the more personal. You will love, love, love it. The seller sent the product in great time and was swift to respond to my changes. i cannot find a single fault with the product or the seller and have been recommending it to several friends already.
Reasons to gift a family tree
I’ve written family trees in calligraphy as heirlooms and keepsakes – and these can be any size and price.
A lovely customer from Yorkshire commissioned a family tree for his son as a gift… and returned a year later for a copy for his other son! This particular tree has a hundred or so names, and I’ve kept all of my notes just in case!
Smaller family tree prints have been given as gifts to people with dementia. This is a really special gift to celebrate family and to help with names, recollections and memory.
Customers have purchased family trees as special anniversary gifts – especially for grandparents. They also make lovely 80th birthday gifts. (By far the most popular request is that I write “Happy 80th birthday…” at the bottom of a family tree!
My family trees also make a lovely wedding or first anniversary gift. Joining two families is a lovely time to celebrate – and a handwritten calligraphy family tree is a unique idea for a wedding present.
Calligraphy family tree reviews
Such brilliant service, gift for my grandad and every request was accommodated. So grateful for such a perfect gift and on arrival it was beautiful – I have told everyone about this brilliant gift idea. Thank you for being so very creative and sharing this gift. I am over the moon with it and I’m so excited to give it to my grandad Christmas Day. Thank you – I had real anxiety about getting it right but I was sent a draft online version and was able to tweak aspects I wasn’t 100% with as I’ve already said every request was executed. I’m really thankful. I would recommend this to everyone that just wants to get someone ‘the perfect personalised family gift’
This is by far the best gift I have ever bought for a family member and the quality is unbelievable. Customer service was also amazing for this products as my queries were answered almost straight away. Would definitely buy again.

How to order your calligraphy family tree
Once you’ve researched your family back through the generations, I can turn it into a beautiful piece of artwork. Your ancestry will be transformed into a family heirloom for generations to come!
Every family tree is fully handwritten with traditional calligraphy tools:
- a dip pen and nib with a dippy ink pot
- quality, FSC certified luxury papers (made in the UK)
- 23 carat gold leaf for any gilding detail
- artist’s gouache paints applied with a brush
To begin your enquiry and get prices for your calligraphy family tree, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
It will help if you can tell me:
- how many names are on your family tree
- how many generations you’d like to include
- what level of detail you require, e.g.
- dates of birth / death
- places of birth / death
- any additional information

I offer many different family trees of all shapes and sizes within this price range, from my original modern calligraphy family tree to other options for gifting.
