Hey there, I'm Prudence

aka The Creative Family Historian

I’m passionate about graphic design, family history and solving mysteries. When the role of Nancy Drew’s sidekick didn’t open up, I turned to family history research to solve the “Mystery of the Missing Ancestors” instead.

My passion for uncovering family stories and solving genealogical mysteries, inspired me to create the Creative Family Historian so I can help people to preserve and celebrate their family histories through unique and visually stunning designs.

With a strong commitment to storytelling and a talent for design, I’m here to help you uncover and preserve your family stories with thoughtful design and creative solutions.

You've got stories to tell.

Stories of intriguing mysteries and heartwarming romances. Page-turning adventures of bravery and betrayal. Fantastic narratives of everyday people living simple lives with extraordinary results.

These are rich histories of people who tackled new frontiers while creating change and crafting legacies that still make a difference several generations later.

These are your ancestors’ stories.

So don’t you think they deserve more than being squeezed into a text-heavy document with thumbnail pictures that you’d need a magnifying glass to see?

I do too, and that’s where I come in.

The Creative Family Historian is a source for templates, tips and strategies to transform your genealogy research into a visual and shareable family history.

I’m passionate about stories, and believe that when it comes to telling them design matters as much as the words. Images, fonts and layouts can set the tone for your story.

I help you transform the results of hours (and hours and hours) of research into shareable mementos that your family will want to keep forever.
