Posted by Jean-Yves on Aug 3, 2020

On GeneaNet, you can download (in PDF) and print ancestry and descendancy charts for free!

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.


No suggestions. It looks great.

My family tree is on Is there a way to use the Ancestry Chart pdf from the files over there? Is there a way to transfer the files to Geneanet?

Answer from Geneanet: No, you must export a GEDCOM file from Ancestry then import it to Geneanet and use our printing options.
