After countless pedigree studies and a lot of paperwork, you are finally ready to sit down and complete your genealogy. But how do you assign each relationship to you? Of course, not everyone can count as the common entity "cousin." This is why you first research, isn't it? To avoid generalization, please understand the nature of your relationship with other relatives. With a few simple hints, you can easily set the relationships in your own family tree in order.
First, separate your relatives for generations. The first generation is defined as the down phase. For example, you and your cousin make up a generation. Similarly, your parents and their cousins make up another. Sorting your data by generation makes it easier to track the algebra you're trying to track. Generations will also decide how broad your personal genealogy will be. Mark each generation from the earliest. If you are trying to track your parents' grandparents and they are the oldest in your book, mark them as the first one.
Second, determine who is your relative from each generation. They are people related to marriage. Blood relatives are those of the same blood. These are your immediate family members, your cousins, your parents' brothers and sisters, your grandparents, your grandparents' brothers and sisters – you got the photo. Simply put, married relatives become your relatives just because they married your blood relationship. These include aunts who marry your uncle and your spouse's relatives. Some people become your relatives through subsequent marriages. If you have them, you should also include your stepfather and brothers and sisters in your private family tree. Be wary when making these distinctions. During your research, you may refer to someone as an uncle in the list, and there is no obvious relationship with you. In the past, people used to use these differences very loosely. Even if there are no necessary conditions such as blood relationship or marriage, close friends or benefactors can be called brothers, cousins or uncles. They should not be included in your pedigree tree. However, if these people make a significant contribution to your family, or if your elderly relatives treat their family, please include them. Put your great grandfather's best friend near your great-grandfather, but that he is just a close friend.
Third, connect each member of your own family tree with the appropriate symbols. Connect parents to their offspring through vertical lines. Use horizontal lines to represent collections. If you are not sure about someone's relationship with someone, use a dotted line. The equal sign usually indicates marriage. A plus or cross marks death. For more detailed symbols, please refer to the Genealogical Tree website or guide. With these simple tips, you can complete your own pedigree chart.
