Free Pedigree Charts {Type, Print and Frame in 30 min}

Don't you think everyone needs a framed pedigree chart displayed somewhere in their home? Well, you're in luck, because I have completed 3 different designs for the 4 generation "Type & Print" pedigree charts, which allow 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!!
  Step 1: Pick your favorite pedigree chart by clicking on
1 of the 3 pedigree charts below to download:

Step 4 Cut
he 8x10 border on your printed 8.5 x 11 

Step 5 Frame! 
You now have a beautiful framed pedigree chart!! Isn't it adorable!!

I used a cute pink paper at first and decided to reprint and use plain white printer paper. I think the white with the cream frame was  the better choice. 

My 6 year old now has this pedigree displayed in her bedroom.

Total Time spent on project: 29 minutes.
