One of the ways that we have encouraged folks to register in a timely fashion is to offer a "special family memento" to the first ten persons who register. Each of these persons received a personalized family tree. What we did is to ask for a the names and dates of their ancestors on the other sides of their families. We then put that info into our genealogy program and were able to print personalized trees. We did either an ancestor tree or an "all in one" tree that included both ancestors and descendants. We did the tree as a chart on 8 1/2 x 11 paper and framed it in a document frame. So with the click of a mouse and the expenditure of one dollar from the local dollar store we were able to create a memento that family members really wanted. We found that this competition really encouraged folks to get their registrations in.
