When I began to study our family history, I expected some family members to be more interested than others. What I did not expect was for our son, Dan, to create a business based on items found in our heritage. But that's what he did.
I publish several blogs about
the various family lines from my mother and father and from my wife's
family. Most of my early research was based on Irish families than
settled in the Saint Louis, Missouri area. When Dan coupled this with
his natural artistry skills and his engineering skills, he started to
develop some jewelry designs. A new industry also caught his attention,
3-D printing was just emerging, and also interested him.
this all together from home, developing new designs on software and
having them 3-D printed at Shapeways.com where he has an online store.
He has done Irish events, festivals, fairs and has a web site of his own located here

My favorite design of his, although I admire many, is this nod to genealogy, the Family Tree design:
As a parent and an avid amateur genealogist, I am so proud of Dan and his work!
