There is a saying that goes like a family is someone you can call when you need a crying shoulder or when you need someone to lift you up. A lot of people believe in this saying, but it does not mean that you have to believe in it as well. But, have you ever wondered who are these people that you can call family? I’m not talking about friends that you consider family, rather, I am talking about the people in your lineage. In your bloodline. Have you ever been so curious to know who they are and what aspect or their personality that they have that you share with them. If you think answering questions based on an assessment can help you solve or can help you find the people in your family, it is not really as easy as it sounds. Of course it is merely a step in the right direction but you would need something more than just that. What I am talking about is tracing down your family by using a blank family tree. From these examples, you can even go from the most simple blank family tree to the most complex, and I mean complex. Say, ten generations, could be seven generations, or even three generations. Who knows what you can find right? So why don’t you try it now?
So to start off, a family tree is basically what it is. A blank family tree is a blank outline, a blank chart or can also be considered a blank diagram. It does not have to be in the shape of a tree but it should show or it should represent the generations of your family. Of course depending on how many generations you are planning to go, the blank family tree can come as a simple diagram to a very complex diagram. A blank family tree consists of smaller charts that you write your name and to trace it from both your parents’ lineage. Depending on how you may want to do your family tree, there are some that place the date of birth and death of a person. Some even include their photographs. The purpose of a blank family tree is to help you retrace both sides of your families. This can also be used for medical purposes to trace where you may have gotten a specific illness or specific disease. To help you find the source, a family tree is the right tool to do so. For children, this is a good way for them to get to know their ancestors.
Have you ever tried making your very own family tree? For students who were told in school, this would be simply in the form of drawing it. For some, it may be more complex than that. If you are looking for a way to know how to write a good family tree, here’s your chance to check out these simple but easy instructions to guide you with making that family tree.
One of the things you can do before writing your family tree is research. Research your family tree to see if you may be related to anyone or if you are a descendant of an influential person in history. The fact that doing research first is quite helpful, this is to make sure that there are no other problems that would arise when you begin. If you are still in doubt, you can always ask your parents for help if you need it as well.
When in doubt, ask yourself what you want to do with your family tree. Ask yourself what you want to see or expect to see when you do your research. Asking yourself what you want your family tree to look like is okay. Since not all family trees have the same thing nor have the same format. Asking yourself what family tree format you may want is nothing short of you preparing.
Another thing to take notice of when you want to make a good family tree is to make a draft first. Your draft should at least contain all the information you want. If you want to add something to the mix, you can do so. Drafting your work before making the final output is better than making the final output and you’re not satisfied with it.
The fun part of making a draft of your family tree is that you are able to add or take away something that may not belong. However, when you do make your family tree, avoid airing out dark secrets or troubling secrets. Those are best left unknown.
Last but not the least, when you are ready to make the final output of your family tree, keep the information clear and concise. Since anyone may want to read your family tree, at least the information is simple and well thought out of. For children, they may want to know who they are related to, so the best is to keep it as clear and concise as possible while adding the correct names and dates of the people they are related to.
A blank chart or blank outline that you fill out in order to make your own family tree. This template helps the person by filling out the right space to write the names of the people in his family and how they are related to them.
Making a family tree can sometimes be difficult especially if you are going to go as far as seven generations or more. The best way to do this is to make a draft. In case you may make a mistake when making it, you need not have to start over.
If you were told to research your lineage, a family tree is a useful tool to trace who you are related to. For medical reasons, this is also a useful tool to trace who may have this certain disease and if they were able to pass it down to others in their line. Call it a medical type of history if you wish.
It goes without saying, being given a chance to be able to know your lineage is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It is always nice to know who you were descended from and who may have the same personality trait or medical trait as you. Of course it is also a fun way for your family members to get together to know and to share stories with people from the past.
