How to print and export an illustrated family tree?

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

The new 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.

Some new options will soon be added.

Offer a beautiful ancestry or descendancy chart to your family and friends!

Go to the page of an individual in your GeneaNet family tree, then click ‘Charts & Lists > Ancestry > Printable 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 for FREE!’ 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.
