Descendant Fan Charts
A descendant fan chart can be
designed in either a full circular display or a semi-circular display
depending upon the number of generations and the amount birth, marriage, and
death information that you want included on your chart. The starting
individual is in the center, and each successive ring contains the children,
grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, and so on
until the outer ring of the chart. Depending upon the size of the family and
the amount of information which you want in each box, a descendant fan chart
can normally include 6 to 9 generations. Once you go above this level,
you will need to use the traditional
descendant chart which is presented in landscape mode. Photos
don't work well in fan charts and should be avoided.
Some of the condensed descendant charts shown
below are ideal to make available to attendees of a family reunion who don't
want to purchase a 25 to 50 foot chart showing complete details, but who
would still like some record of their family genealogy to take home. If you're designing your own chart, your genealogy
software program may lay out your information differently than the examples
shown below; however, since we can print from most any genealogy software
program, the actual design is not an issue for us. To view other examples of family tree charts,
return to our examples page.
In addition to the other types of family tree charts shown on our examples page which you just came from, there are also many other examples of printed family tree charts on almost every page on our site, so please take the time to browse around for awhile. There are even a few examples of charts with a photographic background on our page about enhancing your chart. We've also included several tips to keep in mind on our page titled submitting your order that you might find helpful as you go about designing your chart.
