Offer a Beautiful Ancestry Chart To Your Family and Friends!

Posted by Jean-Yves on Nov 28, 2022

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 ‘Prints and Lists” and “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
– Profile picture
– 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.

dont see how my root is my son and where is a clean one found thank you

Answer from Geneanet: You can change the root of your tree at any time.


I have only recently been made aware of your site. My family tree is on Ancestry. Can I transfer it?

Answer from Geneanet: Yes! Export a GEDCOM file from your Ancestry tree (see this page), which you can then use to import to Geneanet. Be aware that documents and photos in your Ancestry tree will not be transferred, as GEDCOM can only contain your tree proper. We do have a tool which will enable you to import your documents and photos, but these must be available on your own computer and linked to a tree in local software such as Family Tree Maker, RootsMagic, or Gramps (these first two can download docs & photos automatically from an Ancestry tree; the third one is free). Don’t hesitate to ask for help in our forums!
