How To Make a Family Tree: How to create a chart for an individual's genealogy?

How To Make a Family Tree: How to create a chart for an individual's genealogy?

This blog post details how to create a chart featuring a single individual at the center. If you would like to format your chart to feature a husband and wife as the center of the genealogy chart, click here. If you would like to create a chart featuring a family (parents and children) at the center, click here.

If you're looking to create a genealogy wall chart for an individual, here are some recommendations for formatting. The good news? It's pretty straightforward! And you can modify ANY STARTING TEMPLATE to be for an individual, regardless of what shape and with what formatting it starts.

For a circle family tree chart:

To make any chart into a circle featuring an individual at the center once you're in our family tree maker app, you'll want to navigate to the "Advanced" tab in the left side bar. Then choose "Shape" and select "360 Vertical" by clicking the mini preview.

This is in contrast to the "360 Horizontal" family tree chart, which features 2 people (aka a couple) at the center of the chart.

For a fan family tree chart:

To make any template into a fan family tree chart featuring an individual at the center, you'll want to choose "Advanced" > "Shape > "192 Fan Chart". (The majority of fan charts will be this shape already, but is in contrast to the "Half Circle" fan chart which removes the center circle entirely).

If you're importing your names from FamilySearch, you'll just want to select yourself from the dropdown. For more detailed information and instruction on that, click here.
