Family Tree Worksheets

A family tree is a well devised graphic organizer that display the relationship that exists between a series of generations within a genealogical family of people. This relies on the basic structure of a traditional tree but places each branch to indicate the next successive generation. It offers a calming and well-placed position for each family member to be explained with order of birth and marriage. These tools can track a lineage over many successive generations to help family members understand who they are related to and how. Legally they can also be used to establish rights of inheritance and to the ownership of property. Historically in times of war, when families are decimated, family tress have been used as pieces of key evidence in land disputes. These worksheets will help your students frame their very own family tree and walk them through the process.
