SmartDraw's family tree templates make creating family trees and other genealogy charts easy for anyone to do, even if you have never made one before. Before you start, you can browse our examples to get an idea of the kind of family tree you would like to make, and how it might look. You then pick the family tree template and start entering your family information, and SmartDraw guides you through the process of adding new family members and making sure they are positioned correctly in the tree. To make your family tree always look good, SmartDraw keeps all the boxes aligned and connected correctly, automatically, so you don't have to worry about anything other than your own family's relationships. There are themes you can apply to make your family tree look custom, you can even add photos easily for each family member. When you are happy with your result, your family tree can be printed, shared with others via email or the web, or exported to Microsoft Office® or PDF.
Family trees are powerful genealogy charts that organize and retain historical data related to genealogy by illustrating ancestry, descent and relationship of all members of a family or other genealogical group. Family trees are commonly presented with the oldest generations at the top and the newer generations at the bottom.
