Ancestors’ Surnames Bag (embroidered / lined)




The Ancestors’ Surnames Bag (embroidered) personalised with up to 16 family surnames embroidered onto one side of the bag (that’s all the surnames of your great, great grandparents).  It’s great for carrying around your family history research and books.  You get to choose which surname appears in the middle of your design and its colour.  I will create your design placing the other surnames around the central name and choosing their colours and fonts.  Once your design is complete, I will send it to you for you to check (especially the spellings) and approve before I make your bag.  The design appears on one side of the bag. It can be carried over the shoulder or by hand. It’s great for carrying around your family history research and books. Other bag designs are available.

This is a great way to showcase your family history research.  The bag makes a perfect gift for the genealogist in your family and your relatives!
