Family Tree


family tree is a type of chart or diagram representing generations of families and how they are linked throughout the years.

family tree can include names, birth dates, marriage dates and pictures. Family trees can be simple and just include your close family members, or they can go back many generations to enable you to see where you came from, who your ancestors were and how you are related to them.


Can you create a Family Tree of your family? How far back can you go? Have a look at the examples so you understand how to draw a family tree. You may need to ask your parents for help the further back you go!
