  • The classic Pedigree chart
  • Matching Family Group Record
  • A comprehensive Index

The Pedigree is a rigid, fixed-format chart that differs from the Ancestor in that blank spaces are reserved for missing ancestors, instead of compacting the chart.









An Index is a nice touch to quickly locate people, if you have a lot of Pedigree charts.
