Most people use a pedigree chart. This form starts with you. It then branches out back to display your direct ancestral line. Most of the pedigree charts that you can find cover about four generations with spaces included so that you can enter important dates, marriage, place or birth, and death.
The standard format of the pedigree chart is only eight and a half by eleven inches (8 1/2" x 11"). There are people who want larger forms and it is also possible to obtain such large forms. These are called ancestral charts, and you can enter more than four generations. However, this kind of form is often not used.
If you want to do more than four generations, you can still make use of the standard form; just make sure that you put reference numbers on it so that it will be easier for you to follow your family tree.

About Free Genealogy Forms & Charts
We are extreme genealogy enthusiasts and in mid-2007, we were looking for genealogy forms on the Internet. At the time, there was one other site out there with anything decent, The Bailey's Free Genealogy Forms. They are still there and last time we checked, they even had new ones. We definitely suggest you check them out.
We believe that free genealogy forms & charts will help you save time and effort in your genealogy research and definitely help keep you organized. Plus, there is just something about having paper copies to whip out and bore the kids and company with.
So, after four years of trying to corner the lucrative market of genealogy forms, we decided to give ours away for free. We felt the diffentiation would be that we were selling the Excel and Visio files so that anyone could customize their forms and not just have the PDF files.
Very few people felt that was worth paying money for but we would like to thank the handful of you that actually plunked down your hard-earned cash for the forms. The tens of cents earned went to paying for the hosting of this site.
