I love the idea of the new printable family trees. Can I recommend a style that has the ancestors as the roots with the kids and their spouses as branches and grandkids as smaller branches/leaves? I could see this as a great gift for my parents!

Are you referring to this "Campaign" by 'FamilySearch'?
Create Your Family Tree Keepsake
View and share your family tree in a fun way with a printable family keepsake you’ll cherish.
IF, so; THEN, great suggestions; and, as a further suggestion, it would be good if it INCLUDED, the Spouse of ones Children; and, their Children, the Grandchildren - just a few MORE "Leaves"..
Currently the Spouse of ones Children; and, their Children, the Grandchildren are NOT included.
This was raised (Today) in a (General) 'Question' in the "Community.FamilySearch' Forum.
Just another thought.
quite a few of my ancestors used one of their middle names as their everyday first name, & a few had nicknames.
i would not use the current format of this printable tree, whereby the first name that's listed on the birth certificate is automatically shown on the tree, 'coz i can't relate to that person's name.
i would like to be able to choose -
1) the first name my ancestors decided use, or
2) any nicknames they used
I love the idea of the printable family tree. I wanted to make them and give them to and for family and possibly friends.
Great idea, though. It would have made a fun gift for people.
