How do we all fit together?
In genealogy, like in baseball, sometimes you can’t tell the players without a program! Not to worry, these charts might make it a little easier to sort us all out…
To find an answer to the question “where did we come from?” it is helpful to take a look at pedigree charts. These images trace our blood lines back through direct ancestors. They allow us to start with someone we know and work backwards.

Descendant charts help us to visualize the family unit and provide context for “who did they grow up with?” They give us a peek into the various collateral lines that tie us all together.

Here are the charts for those friends, associates and neighbors family groups (the FAN club – thanks to Elizabeth Shown Mills for coining the phrase). Perhaps not related by DNA, but oh so important to our life experiences.
But sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
