Free Genealogy Forms
As you prepare to collect information about your family, we hope these free genealogy forms will be helpful. The Pedigree Chart (sometimes called an Ancestral Chart or Ancestors Chart) is one of the most basic, but helpful charts as you begin. This version will allow you to capture data for four generations on a single sheet.
This four-generation pedigree chart serves as a great starting point in building your family tree. You will occupy the first position, followed by your parents, 4 grandparents, and 8 great grandparents. When listing names of female ancestors, be sure to use their maiden names. For each person, record as much information as you know, as well as the source for your information. A legend serves as a guide for completion of this chart.
Pedigree Chart (without legend)
This version of the four-generation pedigree chart is nearly identical to the one above, the only difference being the removal of the legend in the lower left corner. If you're already familiar with using pedigree charts you may prefer this version which contains more space for notes about individuals or source material. Additional generations can be recorded on separate charts with built-in notations to keep numbering in tact.
Pedigree Chart (with sample data)
This pedigree chart is the same as the one appearing immediately above and prints to a standard 8 1/2" x 11" sheet. Sample data appears in the name field for each generation, showing more clearly where information should be recorded for paternal and maternal lines of your family. This version of the pedigree chart can be helpful as a reference or for use in a classroom setting.
