Bow Tie Charts

A bow tie chart is yet another variety of ancestor chart and is similar to a standard pedigree chart. It is typically square or portrait orientation depending upon how many generations are shown. It starts with a single individual somewhere around the center of the chart and then shows all of his or her paternal ancestors branching out towards the left and all of his or her maternal ancestors branching out towards the right. This normally reduces the height of a standard pedigree chart by half. Once you go past 6-7 generations, the chart will become too tall to display in most situations. At that point, you should consider a vertical ancestor chart which is presented in landscape format. If you're designing your own chart, your genealogy software program may lay out your information differently than the examples shown below; however, since we can print from most any genealogy software program, the actual design is not an issue for us. To view other examples of family tree charts, return to our examples page.

This is an example of a bow tie chart which begins in the center and then branches to the left to show paternal ancestors and to the right to show maternal ancestors. Using 12 point bold for the names and 10 point regular for the birth, marriage, and death facts, this chart which includes 5 generations would measure about three and one-half feet square.
