Genogram Example: Genogram Example

The best way to understand Genogram is to look at some examples of Genogram and start drawing your own. You can now modify the Genogram example below using Visual Paradigm's online Genogram tool.

What is Genogram?

A genogram is a family map or history that uses special symbols to describe relationships, major events, and the dynamics of a family over multiple generations. Conventional family trees might have names and relationships listed next to images or within shapes, however, these type of family trees can often be deprived of a lot of information. But are Tom and Mary twins, are the listed parents their biological parents or were they adopted? You can answer all these questions in the form of a Genogram.

How to draw a Genogram?

You can use Visual Paradigm's easy online Genogram tool to create Genogram. To do this:

  1. Create a blank Genogram.
  2. The symbols available are placed on the left of the Genogram editor, under the palette. Drag and drop the Genogram shapes you need onto the diagram and connect them with connectors.
  3. Save your finished work (File > Save as) to our cloud repository for future access, or to export your diagram as image (JPG, PNG, PDF, SVG, etc) and share it with your co-workers.
