Family Tree Clipart

A family tree is a diagram displaying family relationships spanning multiple generations. It conveys lineage in a tree structure with ancestors forming deep roots and descendants branching outward as leaves. This symbolic nature reveals how we grow from and are nurtured by past roots yet also sprout new growth.

Types of Family Trees

Common configurations include:

Ancestral tree: Flows vertically from parents downwards showing lineage only from past generations.

Descendant tree: Opposite flow starting from a common ancestor and spreading to living relatives as tree expands through newer generations.

Hourglass: Combo of ancestral and descendant flows with older generations at top converging downwards into living generations fanning out at base.

Family circle: Circular format radiating outwards from center common ancestors.

Parts of a Family Tree

Roots – Oldest known ancestors
Branches – Links between relations
Nodes – Points where branches intersect indicating marriages
Leaves – Living generation family members
