Carolyn Calton welcomes YOU!


In every home, frame a family tree to help strengthen your posterity.

Welcome !

I am committed to acknowledging connections throughout the generations--past, present, and future--and igniting a sense of extraordinary family purpose in individuals in THIS generation. Let me help you discover your "roots" as well as strengthen the "branches" of your family tree. If you have had painful experiences in your family line, then this is the blog for you! In fact, all of us will see that as we strengthen ourselves, we strenthen our entire FAMILY TREE through the power of our positive influence.

Family Tree Friday

Reminder:  Have you framed your family tree to help you remember your dynamic and meaningful place in your family line?

I hope you will use our daily prompts for your own written or computer records or in your own posts for blogs, Facebook, Tweets etc. as well as read them here. This is an ideal way to add to your personal or family history on a weekly basis and to keep your efforts toward creating positive change going.  [The Twitter hashtag for Family Tree Friday is #famtf]

Here is the Family Tree Friday prompt:

Write about the important lessons in life have you learned that you’d like to pass forward to other family members or posterity, and how (specifically) are you passing it on? (personal time together, positive words, written family stories, journal keeping, etc.) (This fits the third goal found at, "Preparing Confidently for the Future")

To find the prompts for the other days of the week, click on the tab titled “Daily Prompts” underneath the “Welcome” message at the top of my blog.

The daily prompts are designed to:

1)  Give continuity to Family History and Personal Progress goals each week.

2)  Unite Generational ChangeMakers (those who are just beginning to make positive generational change) with the genealogy/family history community (who have vast resources of knowledge and experience)--thus strengthening ALL family trees.

3) Emphasize the goals of Family Tree Quest which are:
     a)  Glean Wisdom from the Past
     b)  Live Mindfully in the Present
     c)  Prepare Confidently for the Future

We are striving to strengthen lives in THIS generation, thus strengthening our family trees for years to come.  Please consider Joining the Quest if you haven’t already.
