The interface allows you to select the type of chart (classic, fan), the number of generations and the content, and it automatically displays a preview of the chart.

Offer a beautiful ancestry chart to your family and friends!

Go to the page of an individual in your GeneaNet family tree, then click ‘Print > Illustrated Family Tree’ in the menu bar at the top of the page.

Select the theme and the content of your chart:

– Ancestry or descendancy
– Classic or fan chart
– Number of generations
– Date format: yyyy, dd/mm/yyyy, mm/dd/yyyy or yyyy/mm/dd
– First name then last name or last name then first name
– Format of date and place of birth, marriage and death
– Blank boxes

– Chart title
– etc.

Click ‘Download the PDF file’ to save the PDF file to your personal computer.

You can now print your ancestry chart and share the PDF file with your family and friends.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a chart with names on it that represent the X chromosome ancestors of me and my cousins. it would be clear which ancestors to focus on.

It is great to be able to create charts. Is there a way to shrink the print to fit as my attempts to print more than 4 generations have failed. I am able to show 6 gen on a print preview. Is there a way I can adjust the print size. Thanks
