Family tree form

From: Peggy
DearMYRTLE,
I am hoping you can help me. I am looking for a family tree model (a simple format) to hand out as a take-home exercise, as part of a "heritage" and cultural sensitivity module I've developed for our post-secondary school. Can you direct me to some free resources, perhaps designed for kids? Thanks for any suggestion you might have.


DearPEGGY,
Most genealogists use a software program to enter the names/dates/places. A free one is available at
www.familysearch.org and it is called PAF Personal Ancestral File.

This one is shaped like a tree. Just download a .pdf file and it will print out on 8.5 X11" paper, probably the best for your handout. http://misbach.org/pdfcharts/

Here is a cute semi-circular pedigree chart from Martha Stewart:

There are 3 colorful ones from Disney.com:

Happy family tree climbing!
