Family tree

Maybe it's a detailed reminder of just how you're related to the great-great- and twice-removed-medley that shows up at family reunions. Or a way to showcase that yes, the family can trace its lineage back to Pilgrims on the Mayflower. Whatever the motive, artists' takes on family trees can serve as a creative visual trace for one family member's ancestry or descendants.

On Etsy, artist Virginia Rufener-Angus incorporates old family photos (as pictured), if you have them, with prices starting at $100.

Other options: Etsy artist JoAnn Kenny has pen, ink and watercolor trees starting at $300; an extensive painted tree with miniature portraits from Gerhard and Bambi Mounet Lipp runs $975.
