Genealogy Downloads - Pedigree HTML Templates
Two free HTML pedigree chart template files are available; a simple chart and an advanced chart which uses Ajax. These are blank template pages designed to be used on your own website. See also the genealogy tutorials at genlinks.
To 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 can be used.
- who.gif - used as a place marker until you replace it with your own images.
All the advanced pedigree files can be downloaded using this 'zip' file.
A Dreamweaver template will be available for the advanced pedigree chart later.
Feel free to use either style of pedigree chart. You may copy them or modify them but please leave the comments and link to JayDax on the page and maybe download a free copy of our book? Link at the right.
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.
