    My Family Tree

    Oh so many branches

    Are on my family tree.

    Each one tells a name from

    My family history.

    Grandma’s there and Grandpa,

    And lots and lots of greats.

    Each of these fine folks gave

    Me all my many traits.

    Branches that are empty

    Show names we haven’t found.

    But I’m sure to find them

    If I just look around.

    Filling in the branches

    Sure makes my tree look neat.

    When I know them all, then

    My tree will be complete.

    You can use this to show your own family tree. Ask your mom or dad for family pictures that you can cut out and glue or tape to the chart. If you don’t have a picture for some of the spaces, draw that person’s face instead. If your family doesn’t have information about an ancestor, draw a question mark in that space. This chart can be found at friend.lds.org.
