How to Make a Family Tree - Create Family Lineage Easily


By creating a family tree, you can get to know about your ancestors and your overall family lineage. It can take you back in time and let you connect with your awesome family members.

What is Family Tree?

A family tree is a visual chart that shows your family relationships in a traditional tree structure. This is a graphical depiction of the family hierarchy and contains basic details like names, photos of each member and their birth date and death date.

The basic steps to create a family tree:

1.  Collect information about your family members:

For this, you may want to contact your relatives and the elder members of your family to know about the family hierarchy. Your family members can go through old pictures, documents, videos or any other available sources. You can then use that information to build your family tree.

2.  Plan on how far to go:

You will have access to information specific up to only a certain generation in your family. So you need to decide how many generations you want to include in your chart. Depending on how far you can go, you can include your great grandparents and their siblings or their grandparents and their siblings and so on.

3.  Organize the data:

Make a draft of the information you have compiled.

4. Start drawing your family tree:

You can do this either on a chart using a pencil or paper and begin with yourself.
