Genealogy Scrolls by Glen Beachy

The scroll is a method of recording family trees in a way that is easy to read, easy to store, and easy to trace a family line back for many generations. Not just the ancestors but descendents as well. With extra space below the descendents to write in names as they marry and the children's names as they are born. Most scrolls are 24 inches tall for 10 generations of ancestors. For 11 generations of ancestors and 3 generations of descendents it may be 36 inches tall. The largest scroll made so far is 24 inches tall and 23 feet long. Even this length is still user friendly. If you have any questions or to order contact editor of this site.
