Simple pedigree chartTo use the simple chart you will need the following files:

To get these pedigree chart files you can right click the links above and choose 'Save as..' or, far simpler, load the pedigree.htm file in your browser and then choose File > Save Page As... (If you are using Internet Explorer 7+ then press Alt to get the File menu) This method will save all the files for you. Alternatively you can download all the files in this 'zip' file.

The simple chart follows the standard LDS pedigree chart style and can be edited easily - just replace 'Some Person' and 'Ann Other' and the dates with your own information. You can do this with any HTML editor.


The advanced pedigree chart is more complex to use. It has the advantage of expanding on clicking an entry and can hold far more information. Here's what happens when you click one of the entries:

To use it you will need a more powerful WYSIWYG web page editor. Adobe Dreamweaver is ideal but other, less expensive editors such as the free KompoZer or BlueGriffin can be used.

All the advanced pedigree files can be downloaded using this 'zip' file.

A Dreamweaver template will be available for the advanced pedigree chart later.

Both pedigree chart files should work at any web page size and cover four generations. Use the arrows at the right hand side to link to further copies of the pedigree chart files.

Can you help me out?

If you find these pedigree templates useful you can return the favour by downloading my FREE ebook from Amazon - even if you don't read it will help our rankings! I think you'll probably like it though.

It's the first book of a series of 9 books which tell the story of how life on Earth was saved from a cataclysmic extinction when a rogue planetoid collides with Earth in 7141. This first book, and the second, deal with how humanity was made immortal, giving us the incentive to do something about an event so far in the future.

Take a touch of humour, add some genetic science and nanotechnology. Steep with conspiracy and stir in murder and despair. Season with romance between three people in a secret location. Garnish with morality.

The result is 'Immortality Gene', the first in a novel series by John and Shelia Chapman. Book 1 is FREE

If you can find one, the Kindle Keyboard and Kindle touch are still great buys because they offer audio not present on the other e-ink kindles. Play mp3s or have books read to you. If you buy a Kindle Keyboard one on eBay ask to see a close up image of the bottom left hand corner of the screen - they often develop a crack. This doesn't stop them working though. Unlike the Kindle fire and HD/HDX you can read them easily in bright sunlight.
