A family tree is a chart featuring the family relationships in a tree-like structure. Family trees usually present with the oldest generations at the top going toward the newer generations at the bottom. A family tree or an ancestry chart appears the same in a lot of ways, but they are commonly symbolized like a tree with wider space at the top, to be able to fit in the original members of the family and narrower at the bottom.
The family tree originated in Western societies as they focused on kinship and descent of some rulers. Often are arguing for the legitimacy of power and wealth, thus the family tree was traced. So whether its for your finding an inherited wealth or purely tracing back the people who made your existence possible, we have here some Free Family Tree Template that you can use to start tracing.
Family trees can have different types of themes. Some do not even present as a tree as some can be in chart forms, such as the ancestor chart, which starts from having the eldest ancestor at the bottom then going upward toward the youngest; the descendants chart, which starts having the ancestors at the top then going down to the bottom; and the sand-glass diagram starts by putting the ancestors in the middle.
