A family tree is one's
ancestors represented as a
tree structure, or a chart
used in genealogy.
What is a Family Tree?
The purpose of the family tree is to show the
family connections between individuals,
consisting of their names (usually accompanied
by dates, and often also places and occupations)
connected by various types of line representing
marriages, extra-marital unions, and ancestors.
Some use the term only for charts
showing strict patrilineal (from the father)
descent, although in common usage the
term is used much more generally.
Family trees may also be called pedigree
