A pedigree chart is similar to a
vertical ancestor chart in that it starts with a single individual, but it
differs because the orientation is left to right in portrait mode as opposed
to bottom to top landscape mode. It begins on the center of the left
side of the page and then branches to the right to show his or her parents,
grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, and so on.
This is a popular layout for ancestor charts that only include 5-6
generations. Once you go past 6 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.
In addition to the other types of family tree charts shown on our examples page which you just came from, there are also many other examples of printed family tree charts on almost every page on our site, so please take the time to browse around for awhile. There are even a few examples of charts with a photographic background on our page about enhancing your chart. We've also included several tips to keep in mind on our page titled submitting your order that you might find helpful as you go about designing your chart. And don't forget that we also have a huge selection of blank ancestor charts which allow you to fill the data in on your own.
