Designs

Depending on the size of your family tree and how many ancestors you have been able to trace this can influence the best design that will suit your layout.

Below are a few variations of designs from a very simple 3 generation layout (bottom right) to a more in depth full family history (top right). If you click each design there’s a brief description of how the design works and some annotation to guide you through. With no two family tree’s being the same these examples give you an idea of how different trees can look depending on the actual amount ancestors you’ve traced.

Each family tree is made totally bespoke to suit your research. The designs below show you how your family tree can look. If you have a tree ready to be designed it will pretty much fall in to one of these types of designs. If you are unsure which would suit your tree, simply drop us a line and a copy of your family tree and we’ll able to advise you on what will suit it best.
