We Begin with Your Pedigree Chart

Your Pedigree Chart is a snapshot of your ancestors.

It shows your “family tree” at-a-glance — letting you see all your direct-line ancestors in one place.

You fill in the chart starting with yourself as Number 1 — your father is Number 2, your mother Number 3.  Your father’s side of the family will be on the top half of the chart and your mother’s side will be on the bottom half of the chart.

Using a computer program such as one of these, you can make additions and corrections; and easily print out a new updated chart.

Pedigree Chart Tips…

  • Women are listed with their maiden surname
  • Record dates as: Day, month, year (for example: 11 Sep 1950)
  • For an estimated date, list the date as: abt. 1850
