Your Favorite Genealogy Design. You voted. We Delivered. Here Are The Winners!

On Facebook and Instagram, we asked for your vote on these four different genealogy designs...
...within only 24 hours, hundreds of votes came pouring in and your votes determined the winner!!

THE WINNER!! You voted #4 as your favorite genealogy design. (Photo below)

THE RUNNER UP: You voted #1 as your 2nd favorite genealogy design. (Photo below)

THE NEW AND IMPROVED #2: Many of you asked me if I would flip the border on #2, so it was on the top instead of the bottom. So of course I recreated it... just for you. What do you think?

Thanks for all your votes. 

Here are the  final creations.  We couldn't have created these without you. Feel free to share it, pin it, tweet it, like it or save it...

 ...and remember to keep connecting the dots!

P.S. These beautiful family members are my ancestors:  John Eli Burns (father), Anna McCloud Burns (mother), and their four children; (L-R) Grover, Jessie, Floyd, Grace.

"Cherish All Your Happy Moments; They Make A Fine Cushion For Old Age."

"Cherish all your happy moments; they make a fine cushion for old age."
-Booth Tarkington

About this photo: This is my great grandmother, Maude Ethel Adams (left) and my grandmother Ruth Imogene Adams Burnes (right) standing in front of grandmas home in Napa, California in 1961.  Grandma told me her most treasured moments were spending time with her mother. They had a great bond and were very close. Grandma always spoke so highly of her. 

What are your happiest moments in life?

Keep connecting the dots! -Sarah :)
