FREE Pedigree Charts for Kids and Teenagers. Type, Print & Frame in 30 Min.

Here's a super cute and inexpensive way to incorporate family history into your child's bedroom by using a colorful Family Tree (pedigree chart). This is my 13 year old daughters bedroom with accents of family history. On the left wall you will see the family tree that I designed to match the exact colors of her bedding, so it all ties together perfectly :)
Now, don't you think your child needs a framed pedigree chart displayed in their bedroom? Well, you're in luck, because I have completed 3 different designs for the 4 generation "Type & Print" pedigree charts, that allows you to:
  • Type, Print & Frame (8x10) in 30 minutes or less
  • Print, Write & Frame (8x10)   in 30 minutes or less
Pedigree Chart Tips:
  • For female, always use the maiden name, (First, Middle, Maiden). Never use married name on a pedigree chart.
  • Father's name always goes on the top, ascending to the right. 
  • Mother's name always goes on the bottom, descending to the right.
Now let's get started! 5 Easy Steps:
  1. Click: on your favorite pedigree chart below to download your pdf "Type & Print" pedigree    chart. (Make sure you have Adobe Reader installed on your computer).
  2. Type: your Genealogy! Hit "Tab" to go to the next field. Note: "you cannot save data typed into this form. Please print your completed form, if you want a copy for your records". (Have your Genealogy & Family History close by to refer to as you type.)
