Family tree template

Start with an editable family tree template that invites collaboration from the whole household to build out your family lineage.

Your roots run deep. Show them off.

Ace your genealogy project, surprise grandma with a personalized pedigree chart, or create a narrative around your brand’s evolution.

Tell your story: Bring generations closer together with a detailed map of your family story filled with great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

Craft an ever-changing collage: Mall portraits, prom pics, and all-khaki Christmas cards—bring your tree to life with pictures from the past.

Showcase any relationship: Use a fillable family tree template to create a web of interconnected products, ideas, or teams (because those can feel like family too).

A family tree diagram is an organized depiction of your family history. Whether you call it a genealogy, a pedigree chart, or a family tree, it’s a diagram that shows how each member of your clan is related.

What is the importance of a family tree? The answer is threefold. It provides an easy-to-understand visual representation of your lineage over the years. It preserves your family’s legacy in one place. And finally, it shows just how connected everyone is.

Most family trees start with a pair of ancestors at the top before slowly expanding into a network of children and spouses. Each horizontal line typically represents a generation, so your mom and her siblings would be side-by-side, the same way you’d be in line with your siblings, and so on.

By following the lines that connect each person, you can pinpoint your exact relationship with any family member. For example, you’ll be able to tell that the “once removed” part in your second cousin’s title means you’re a generation apart.

All you need to build a family tree is a blank canvas for the names and an amateur family historian. A great-uncle or a third cousin might be able to help you draw connections that stretch back for centuries.

As you uncover more about your ancestry, your diagram will probably change shape. With a template of a family tree from FigJam, you—and your siblings—can move the name cards anytime you find out about a distant relative.
