We always have to include some amazing color coded charts in our Annual Collection. We are the color coding specialists and color makes everything look better--not to mention more understandable. We can color code anything: place, linage, time-frame, genetics, marriage, generation, health, DNA, research results, pioneer lines, royal lines, immigrants, soldiers, colonial Americans, different wars or branches of service, religious office, divorce, occupation. You could use any event your ancestors might have participated in such as being a Filles du Roi, Mayflower immigrant, etc.
You could also use color coding for research help such as whether or not a DNA test has been taken, whether the person is a match, you could include icons for proven and unproven lines, for the number of sources or images you have, for adoptive and genetic lines--you get the idea. We can go far and beyond what the current genealogy chart softwares offer.
|For the Family Reunion|
One of the most common types of color coding we do, this chart is coded by the each of the children of the main couple. Each child and their descendants are a different color, thus it is easy to find everyone at the family reunion. This chart has only names for a condensed, clean chart of a large family. Only six pictures illustrate their rich and varied history.
|Ethnicity AND Details|
One of my favorite types of color coding is by country of origin. This color coding goes one step further showing each country's outline. A beautiful display of a diverse heritage. Originally 24 inches wide and 42 inches tall.
|All the Immigrants Coming Down to Modern Day|
Nine generations of ancestors show on this 24x36 inch fan chart showing dates and places for ancestors. The chart starts with three siblings. Colors and flags show each ancestor's country of origin.
|Ancestors, Descendants, Color and Descriptive Icons|
This chart again starts with the three children of a couple and then traces the father's lineage. A simple left to right chart shows of immigrants, military and specific ethnicity notes while colors correspond to a digital and paper filing system with more information.
