Suggestions to help with your Cousin’s Chart

Here are some ideas you may want to use: The bottom of the fan chart may say "First Generation, Second Generation, Third Generation", and so on. An alternative is, you can change these around to fit the relationship in your family lines to the organizational chart to say "Father and Mother, Sons and Daughters, Husbands and Wives" after that, then "Grandchildren, Husbands and Wives again, and then Great-Grandchildren". You can have the middle say something like "Our Family Tree" in the center. If you would like to group your family genealogy a different way than just let us know, and we'll see if we can accommodate. Keep in mind that we can change almost anything on this organizational chart. Free pedigree chart if needed.

If this organizational chart sounds like the best way to display your family genealogy records, than just follow these instructions:

1. You must first purchase a blank fan chart from at the bottom of this webpage, so you can fill the names from your family genealogy records on it. We will send your blank chart right out in the mail.

2. Once you have the fan chart then there are two ways to start your cousins chart.

You can type all the names you want from your family group records into a word processor like Microsoft Word. Print the family names on a sheet of paper, and then cut each name out with scissors. Remember that they must be small enough to fit on the fan chart, but big enough for us to read.

If you don't have a word processor you can also use your email and print it out from an email. But if you don’t have access to either one, then take all the family names that are in your genealogy record that you want on the cousin's chart, and handwrite them on a sheet of paper then cut those names out. Remember that they must be small enough to fit on the fan chart, and big enough for us to read. If you pick this second way of writing down your family lines by hand, then keep in mind that we do not guarantee for spelling when we have to read handwritings. You can read more about this on our "Frequently Asked Questions" page.

3. You then place the pieces of paper where you think the names would look best on the organizational chart. This takes a little time and you may have to try different places on the chart for the family names to look right. You may also have to skip a space here or there to get the relationship of each family name or family group, in the places that looks the best. You can work in all the cousins, uncles, aunts, and everyone else that will be at the family reunion. Keep in mind this could be a great gift idea at the reunion, so don’t make one side look better then another side.

4. Once you have organized each family name or family group where you want them, you can either glue or tape each piece of paper onto the fan chart, or you can start writing their names on the fan chart in the correct position by hand. You must print very clearly and small enough to fit the names in each space, but large enough for us to read. If you want other information included with a name just add it now. {We like the glue or tape method the best!!!} This is of course your decision. Keep in mind the rules we have on handwritten names that we mentioned in step 2.

5. Filling in your fan chart this way means we are using it like a pedigree chart. This fan chart will fall under all rules regarding pedigree charts and family genealogy information on fan charts. These rules are for our protection because not everyone writes their names clearly. You can fine these rules on our "Frequently Asked Questions" page of our genealogy site. Free pedigree chart if needed.

6. The black lines that are normally on a fan chart that separate the family names can also be changed. You can cross out or shorten the black lines that may not look like they belong. Just scratch out the parts of the line that you do not like by crossing off that line by an “X”. You can also add a line here or there if necessary or make them bolder. Just use a marker or pen to darken a line to make it bolder. This is for us to see when we create your cousin’s chart. Remember that you can change almost anything on this cousin's organizational chart, which is why it is it makes such a good family reunion idea.

7. One last thing. You should decide whether to have a coat of arms or surname history on your new cousin’s chart {organizational chart}. You can find examples of fan charts with coat of arms or surname histories on them for comparison on our Samples page. They look beautiful and improve the décor of any room.

8. When you have completed this task, you then mail the cousins chart to us.

9. We would then email or phone you an estimate of what the cost will be to complete your fan chart using the design you created with the family genealogy records that you had.

10. .Once payment is received. We will then make you a new cousin's chart showing the family lines in your new genealogical tree with the names in the same spaces that you have on the original fan under the guidelines we have mentioned on this page and on our "Frequently Asked Questions" page.


It's that easy. Remember that we sell extra copies for only $19.95 in case others in your family or at the family reunion would like an organizational chart like this {restrictions apply}. These make a great Birthday Gift or Christmas Gifts, even a Wedding or Anniversary Present.
