Vertical Ancestor Charts
A vertical ancestor chart starts
with a single individual at the bottom center and then branches upward to
show his or her parents, grandparents, great-grandparents,
great-great-grandparents, and so on. The orientation of this type of
chart is bottom-up and is displayed in landscape format. Most
genealogy software programs refer to this type of chart as a vertical
ancestor chart or vertical pedigree chart since the flow of information is
vertical. This is the most common layout for ancestor charts once you
go past 5-6 generations and a standard left to right pedigree chart becomes
too tall to display. 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.
