The new type of interactive family tree

Advantages: Easy to create, to read (no need for software), to share; multilingual; interactive; printable

Definition: A family tree is a diagram that displays the different generations of people belonging to a family. It contains additional information such as dates of birth and death, education, jobs, diseases, etc.

Examples of family trees created with LinkNotions

The templates are useful:

  • To discover how people are called in relation to Me, in several languages: French, English, German and Luxembourg.
  • To serve as a template for creating your family tree (see below).

In the extended family tree you will also find an explanation of the terms of kinship. Examples:

  • My first cousin = The daughter of my father’s (or mother’s) sister (or brother)
  • My maternal grandfather = My mother’s father
  • My father-in-law = My spouse’s father

Here is a page that explains the vocabulary of family relationships.
