Family tree charts vs. Pedigree Charts – which one is right for you?
Family tree charts can quickly spiral out of control and become extremely complex. This is because they record the whole family ‘group’ including siblings and half-siblings. A pedigree chart, on the other hand, only records direct descendants. This is why they are often referred to as ‘Ancestral Charts’ i.e. they record a person’s ancestry. If your family tree is especially challenging, with plenty of siblings, half-siblings etc., then consider starting with a pedigree chart. You can always move up to a fully fledged family tree when you are feeling brave enough.
