Free Relationship Charts - Canon or Common Law & More.

I recently attended a family reunion on my husbands side and I loved it because of the stories that were told of his great, grandfather; Roscoe Titensor. After one of the stories, a woman sitting next to me said, "but how are we all related?" I was feeling confident about my family relationship knowledge and noticed that she was probably the same age as my husband, so I asked her "is Roscoe Titensor your great grandfather?" She said "Yes he is!" I then told her that my husband and her are 2nd cousins and our children are 3rd cousins, and her children and my husband are 3rd cousins once removed. She was completely astonished that I knew this, so I told her with a smile; "I like genealogy."

I realized at that point that there are probably a lot of people who didn't understand family relationships in their genealogy. So I wanted to put together a tutorial to help YOU understand your family relationships using these Relationship Charts.

Here's one of the most traditional charts out there: The Canon or Common Law Relationship Chart:

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.)
  3. Print: on 8.5 x 11 paper or scrapbook paper. Here are a few paper examples that I bought at Hobby Lobby (.40 a piece)
  4. Cut: The 8x10 border on your printed 8.5 x 11 
  5. Frame! In 30 minutes or less, you can have a beautiful framed pedigree chart!!
