What is a Family Tree Diagram?

A family tree (similar to pedigree chart) is a diagram representing family relationships in a conventional tree structure. A family tree collage is an interesting way of learning about the heritage and history of the family. It can affect inheritance and be an important clue to a person's lineage and ancestors. It can impact a child's learning in many different ways. Typically, it is a tree-like structure that link people according to blood relationship and are divided into several levels in order to show family origins, family relationship, and members' basic information.

Actually, family trees can have many different themes, for example, it might encompass all direct descendants of a single figure, or all known ancestors of a living person. Another might include all members of a particular surname (e.g. male-line descendants). Yet another approach is to construct a tree including all holders of a certain office, such as kings of Germany. This relies on dynastic marriage to hold together the links between dynasties.
