One of the most common questions that we get about our trees, is whether or not we can include kids, grandkids, and even great-grand-kids. While this custom tree is always an option, we were not satisfied because we really wanted a tree to show both Past and Present family members! So, this is what inspired this tree. A tree that features a couple at the base and their kids, grandkids & optional great-grandkids in the leaves of the tree, with their ancestors shown in the roots of the tree. The wait is over and the tree is now available right here in our shop!

One of the biggest reasons that I do Family History work, or even was interested in getting involved in the first place (maybe I’ll tell you the full story later…), was to be able to Temple Work for them. *If you are not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and are interested in understanding what this even is, check out this fabulous article explaining why Mormons undertake so much family history work: https://www.comeuntochrist.org/beliefs/family/family-history
So, after catching the Family History bug, I have found new meaning behind the time that I spend at the Temple and naturally, I want to share that love of the Temple with everyone!! Continue reading Free Bountiful Temple Images + Quote
Welcome to our new website and blog! We are super excited to have it up and running! I have been kind of stressing about what my first blog post should be and how to just get the ball rolling with this blog in general, but we have lots of ideas and hopefully it will be fun and useful information to you.
I thought I would start and just introduce ourselves… Matt and I (Carolynn), are husband and wife and we have had a marriage long dream to work together, so this business is basically a dream come true!
We are a family of 5, 2 little girls and a boy. We also have a little boy on the way, Due March 28th!! We love spending all our spare time together going on “adventures” and just being with each other. Our children are the joy of our lives and they are our number one priority.
I have been a Graphic Designer for approximately 12 years (whew! longer than I even realized). Doing everything from Sign Work, to Magazine Publishing, to Blog & Web Design.
Matt recently Graduated with a degree in Graphic Design from Full Sail University. He has also been long invested in art, working for many years of our marriage as a Fine Art Reproduction Printer, which means that he is super picky about printing and quality!
As a team, we hope to provide high quality art pieces that our customers will treasure for their lifetime.
We started Branches with the sincere hope that we could spread our love for family and genealogy to people around the world! We hope that our art pieces will inspire individuals and families to dive deep into their family roots, learn about their ancestors, and share those stories with their children and grand-children.
