It's Saturday Night - is everyone ready for some Genealogy Fun?

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (and I hope that you do... because this one is really cool!), is to:

1) Go to the website and explore their FREE offerings. Click on the "Create" button, or choose to make a slideshow or posters from their main page (there are more than one screen of poster backgrounds).

2) Make one or more posters or other creation - perhaps they relate to genealogy or your own family history. Save them to your computer (right click, Save as Picture for Windows users).

3) Show your creations to us... in your own blog post, on a Facebook post, or on Google Plus etc.

Thanks Randy, for another great challenge!

I decided to highlight my great-grandfather, Henry C. Dreher, Sr. He was a cigar roller in Louisville, Kentucky at the turn of the 20th century. I fictionalized the company, giving it his name, but love it!

The sign reads:
"Dreher Cigars - Kentucky's Best"

[By the way, the program ages everything so you can't quite make it out... but he's actually smoking a cigar in this pic.]

Henry C. Dreher, Sr. was a first-generation American born German-American. His parents were born "in the old country". He was born 1863 and died 1925, and lived his whole life in Louisville, KY.
