Introduction

A family tree is a technical, graphic way to portray the system of relationships
between people of the same family. We distinguish two main types of family tree:

A Table of Ancestors
Beside the person in question are recorded the names of his parents, above each
parent his or her parents, and so on. It is customary to build such tables as if to the
fifth generation with a total of 16 ancestors (8 in the fifth generation above the person
in question).

A Table of Descendants
Below the person in question (and spouse) are recorded their descendants of the
first generation (including spouses), below them are recorded their descendants, and
so on. The table is limited only by the researcher's ability to trace and collect
information about all the descendants.

As a rule, family trees are drawn in a hierarchical form that enables one to see the
different generations. Graphically represented, family trees spread outwards to
include the various individuals in the family, with different generations shown at
different heights. Family trees can include various facts about the individuals that
appear in them: the person's name, identity number, indication of death, year of death
etc. In most cases it is preferable to display additional details about individuals in a
separate framework at the side, in order to preserve the picture of the tree as a
whole
