Infographics are a simple way to visually communicate information. I’m passionate about genealogy, and love DIY projects. Today, I was thinking about how I could use an info-graphic for my extended family to build excitement for our upcoming Kohler family reunion. (You could also adapt this for a holiday newsletter. ) There are several different free and paid info-graphic generators that can be found using your search engine. After reviewing several, I decided to use infogr.am, because I liked the look of the free templates. Plans can be upgraded for business and professional use.
There are so many options for information that you can include in your info-graphic after you have done some family history research. If you have spent a lot of time gathering information to add to you your family tree, this could be a way to share it with the rest of the family. Here are a few category ideas to get you started-
- Average life span
- Number of years married
- Places lived (you can add maps and highlight states)
- Number of children
- Gender of children
- Eye color
- Level of education
You could create info-graphics for past generations as well. What information will you include on your info-graphic?
This is such a great idea.
Thanks! Feel free to link to my if you decide to create one. Maybe there is a free template that you can add cropped photos to?
I found a few template sites I have not figured out how to do it just yet lol. Thanks.
This is a cool idea. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Jen, I love this! I love the idea of a building excitement before the reunion, and it also seems like it might help with getting younger relatives interested in genealogy…! I will share it with my family 🙂
So glad Emily! Sometimes you have to think outside of the box to make it more interesting or engaging. Feel free to share what you come up with!
