This JPG image file of a blank family tree has 143 spaces for people. It is a freeform tree, so you can use this to record all sorts of unusual family circumstances, adding in chosen family, godparents, and even pets, if you like! You can list both ancestors and descendants, and there’s an area at the bottom that could be used for additional people, or as a numbered index.
One example of how you could use this tree:
You could fill in 7 generations of pedigree, starting with you and your partner, plus two generations of descendants, meaning 3-4 kids, with space for each of them to record 3 kids of their own in the future (your grandkids).
THIS IS AN INSTANT DOWNLOAD
You can print it locally at 32 x 40 inches or *larger. I’ve included one version of this file that has been scaled down for use on Canva. You’ll also get instant access to the high-resolution version of the image, which is ideal for large format printing.
*There is also a much larger version (same number of people, just much higher resolution) that can print larger. If your computer can handle extra-large files, you might like to download that version for an exceptionally high-quality print.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILLING IT IN
*This tree is larger than the one in the example above, but the instructions are the same.
THERE’S A NEW AMAZING WAY TO SHARE THIS TREE DIGITALLY AND ADD PHOTOS
Have you heard of Ponga? Victoria MacGregor of https://victoriaspress.com has created an exceptional tutorial, available for free through RootsTech, that walks you through turning this family tree design into a multimedia archive of family history information that can be shared (privately) with your whole family!
Here’s a quick video that shows a bit of what you can do when you use one of my family trees with Ponga:
