Ancestor charts are a popular way to visualize family history. They show the relationships between people and their parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and so on. This chart also shows how many generations back each person is from you. This allows for quick reference if you need to find out who your fifth great-grandparent was or what your third cousin once removed is named! Ancestor Charts can be created in a few different ways: online with software that generates an automatic chart or paper hand drawn by hand with pencils and pens. The DIY approach requires more time but will give you an end product that is completely unique to yourself.
