The family tree chart is designed to be printed on A1 size glossy paper.
If you've been collecting information about your family's past for some time, you'll know how frustrating it can be just keeping things organized. Standard A4 sheets are great for jotting down new names and dates and places, but then what... you end up with a mountain of paper with no filing system.
My family tree chart allows you to record the details of all your direct ancestors back through 7 generations, easily and orderly. You can add text and photos to the PDF image using PhotoShop (or similar) before printing or print as is and add the details later using our unique labelling system.
There is plenty of space and you can retrieve any information at a glance.
The chart follows a simple fan design.
The simple yet pleasing design allows anyone to follow your family lines. Many charts are so complex that only the person who compiled it would ever be able to understand it. No such problems here, just follow the family lines back in any direction for 7 complete generations...
...right back to your Great Great Great Great Grandparents.
Ideal for framing.
Whether you do your genealogy for personal satisfaction or to have interesting family stories to share with friends or relatives, you will appreciate the benefits of this family tree chart even more once it's printed, framed and hanging on your wall. The image is designed to be printed A1 size, but you can easily resize it to whatever you wish.
Godridge's unique and copyrighted background design.
Many family tree charts I see come with a choice of coloured backgrounds... I've even seen one with Thomas The Tank Engine! ...well if that's your thing, go for it. However, the background I've designed is not only eye-catching, hypnotic and beautiful, but also neutral.
Meaning that once framed this family tree chart will fit perfectly into any room.
The boxes on the chart are designed to fit PC mini-labels.
This time-saving sticker system was created to solve TWO problems. Firstly, I have terrible handwriting that would surely ruin any chart, and secondly I needed to be sure I had the right information before finalising my family tree chart. I didn't want to have to start erasing entries or worse, using white-out! I simply enter all my details into a database and print out PC labels. I can stick the labels onto the family tree chart and build up my tree as I go. If I made a mistake, and I fully expected to, I just peeled off the sticker and replaced it.
No fuss. No mess. No hassle.
Of course if you are a bit more confident with PhotoShop, or some other photo enhancement software, you can always add all the details and photographs to the chart image before you get it printed. That will give you a top-notch professional look - and you can always use a sticky label if something needs changing at a later date.
Space available for photographs.
How many charts have you seen where there are so many generations crammed into a tiny space that there is barely enough room for a name and possibly a date of birth? What this chart gives you is white space (or in this case... swirly green space!). What this means is that there is plenty of background space which you can use to add photographs or notes or whatever you like. Some charts have old black and white images embedded into the background... that's nice, but is it one of your photos or did it come like that?
Who are these people and what do they have to do with YOUR family tree?
You can add your own relevant photos and create your chart the way you want it.
Truly personal details of your choice.
So many other charts have been organised for you in such a way that you add name here, dates there, siblings go here, maximum of three of course. Have you seen them? This chart allows you to be truly creative and totally personal.
Depending on the size of font you decide on, you should be able to fit 5 or 6 lines of text on a sticker. With this sort of space you can choose to add Name, Date of Birth, Death or Marriage, Occupation, Residence, Siblings, or even some interesting facts you may have uncovered.
The point is.. the choice is yours. After all, it's YOUR family.
