Compilation of family documents, letters, recipes, and photographs - This record book using photo genealogy and would be more of a picture book than a narrative.
Biography on one major ancestor - Develop a narrative around the life story of one main ancestor. This effort makes note of the chronological history and the history of friends, family and other associates taking part in this ancestor’s life.
Multigenerational family history - This body of work would offer narratives, photographs, recipes, etc related to each person in the family tree.
Documentation of family clusters - This would be a broader collection of family clusters. Each family unit would hold a separate narrative that may give more focus to a patriarch or matriarch of the family unit.
Genetic Family Tree - The use of genetic genealogy is used to trace family histories across many generations and even continents.
