Colorful Family Relationship Chart Helps Answer the Question “How Are We Related?”

Whether you’re gathering with extended family for a holiday or reunion, or connecting with distant genetic cousins via email or facebook, it’s always convenient to have a firm understanding of how exactly everyone is related.

It’s a simple enough task when you’re talking about first cousins, or even great aunts, but what about your grandfather’s sister’s granddaughter you met at Thanksgiving? Or that nice women from Alabama who found you on Gedmatch and who claims to be the great granddaughter of your long searched for 3rd great grandfather Edward?

    I could not find this chart on Crestleaf website.
    You must sign in, and my guess is you have to build a tree before you can see the chart,

    Actually little info on their website unless you SIGN UP

    Is your “Family History Daily” really daily? Or do you just send out a batch of messages intermittently? Since I do not receive a daily update, I thought I hadn’t been approved as a member.

      Hi Marguerite,

      Thanks so much for your interest in Family History Daily. Unfortunately, because we are such a small publication, we cannot always produce content daily. We do try to publish as often as we can, however, and are working toward becoming a full daily publication.

      We only send a newsletter to our subscribers when we have new content to share–and never more than once per week. If you would like to be updated immediately when we have published a new article you can subscribe to our RSS feed here: or select “Notify Me of New Posts by Email” when leaving a comment (the system will send you an email whenever a new article is published).

      You may also want to follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest for regular updates. You can find links for these in the sidebar to your right.

      Thanks again for reading and sharing your feedback!
