• Family Tree Template

    This family tree template is available for download at no cost. This is a fairly standard six-generation family tree template that is a great place to start for the first time genealogist. 

    • It’s contains ample space to notate the three key dates including birth, marriage, and death.
    • Each key date is accompanied by a reference for location up through the 5th generation.

    To download your blank family tree template just enter your email address to the right and we’ll send you a link to your free download.

    You’ll find that each sixth generation notation contains space to enter a “continuation number” that can be carried over onto subsequent charts providing ample opportunity to document your ancestors back 12, 18, and even 24 generations.

    As one past customer put it…

    “I was hoping to learn exactly where to start. I was going to so many different resources and getting confused as to what was what. I needed to get more organized and you helped me do that.”


    This family tree template is a core tool in any genealogists tool belt. Please feel free to modify this design to your own needs. However, please note that you are given permission for unlimited personal use. This template may not be sold or traded without written permission of the author.

    Thank you, yes I was able to down load it, now I just need to figure out how to use it. It is for my Sons history project.

    Hi there- Yes, the family tree was helpful. It was for my daughter’s class project and she enjoyed learning about the “Family Tree”. Thank you for your assistance. >> Robin A.

    It was fine, thank you. My son needed to look at some ideas for a class project, so we were studying lots of different options. >> Cathy G.

    The template is great–I’ve already used eleven pages in two days. Thanks so much! >> D W.

    Everything great I have used it to show my family to the 4th generation great >> Mark L.

    Chris, Thank you for the family tree. My daughter needed it for a school project and i’m happy to report that she recieved an A+ . Thank you so much. >> Wendy L.

    THANK YOU FOR ASKING. IT DOWNLOADED OKAY. to be honest I have done any thing with it yet but it did come through. My gradfather came from Scotland and I did some research using the Scotish census information. Once again Thank you for the tree. >> Gordon R.

    Hello Chis, Your download is simplicity at its best, many thanks, it is now in use and helping to log all my recent searches into the past. Keep up the good work. Kind regards. >> Cyril F.

    Hi Chris No troubles thanks. It downloaded perfectly. Regards, >> Joan H.

    Everything went great. I only had a problem placing the names exactly where they were suppose to go, and as I started getting closer to my 5th generation, I could put the last names in. Other than that everything was fine. I was trying to type all the names in on my computer. I typed as much as I could and then wrote the rest in. Thanks

    Chris: Thank you for your help. We found out that my boyfriends mother and father’s family tree has already been worked on, so we will be getting those copies at the end of the month and continuing further with the Native American ancestry. >> Charanne G.

    I had no problem getting the template. Now I’m trying to fill in the blanks Thank you >> Michelle B.

    Hi Chris, Yes I was able to download the blank family tree template just fine. I have only recently started researching my family’s history. I have found it tough going on some of my ancestors.

    A fire in a courthouse in Arkansas has created a roadblock. I am still plowing ahead. I plan to visit a great aunt sometime in the near future to see if she can remember anything to help in my search. All this research is very time consuming.

    I love doing it though. I don’t think my kids like it though (I have young ones still at home). Thank you for your help. >> Husker B.

    worked great – thx >> John L.

    Many thanks for the download of your excellent template. I shall be using it in the near future, since I have only just began to order all my known ancestors onto index cards. My problem is that I and anyone born before me have been born abroad and not to British Citizens.

    Some of the sources have been destroyed, therefore cannot be accessed. Also, to complicate the story even further, the various ancestors come from roughly four different areas in Germany, one of which is since 1946 under Polish administration. I am in touch with a German heritage association who are researching sources in the Polish administrated area. These people advise me to subscribe to the Mormon database.

    What do you think? Many thanks for your email, and yes I would be interested in the challenges other family research beginners come across. In the meantime best wishes from >> Erika D.

    Hi Chris, Everything went well. My son had to do a family tree for a school project and you had just what we need to finish it. He got an A on the family tree. Thank you again. >> Kelly O.

    I was able to download it and save it to my computer. Thanks. >> Beth T.

    Thank you for the tree, it went well. My daughter used it for a french project. >> Nancy E.

    Everything went fine. Have been doing genealogy for a number of years. I needed the template for my grandson who had to do a family tree for school. Gave him all I had from the computer, but didn’t have any blank ones for him to use. Thank you. >> Kirby S.

    Things went okay. >> Ellen B.
