Trellis: the Chart With Everyone In It

Published on: 20 June 2017

Trellis chart

One of the innovations Progeny has introduced to genealogy is the Trellis chart, “the chart with everyone in it”.



The Trellis chart is a brand new way to tell the story of your family. It shows everyone in your family, in a way that no traditional box chart can do.

Based on research by a group of scientists, the Trellis is a diagonally-filled matrix, where rows are individuals and columns are nuclear families. Click here for more information.

The Trellis allows for interactive investigation of your family tree. With one click, you can highlight all the ancestors and descendants of an individual. Click a second person and you can see where their pedigrees intersect in a colorful display. Collapse the tree for a condensed view. Navigate up and down the tree with a simple click.

See review by Dick Eastman (registration required).  See video from original inventors of  Geneaquilts, on which Trellis is based.

Charting Companion with the Trellis is available for all genealogy programs.
