In a pedigree, all direct ancestors in a male and female line of a proband (also called pedigree) are listed or depicted. Genealogy Online displays pedigree records in textual and graphic form, among other things:

The Genealogy Online Pedigree PDF wizard offers the possibility to create modern-looking pedigree records that you can print (or have them printed out) and have them plasticized to serve as a placemat.

If you want to get an idea of where the ancestors were born, the birth places can be shown on a map:

An idea from the American genealogical blogger Paul Hawthorne, who combines pedigree and birth places, turned out to be very popular. The idea is simple: instead of the names (and dates) the places of birth (or provinces / countries) are shown, with each place being given a colored background to make it easier to distinguish patterns.

Genealogy Online has included the geo pedigree chart in its services as part of the Plus subscription. On the basis of your genealogical data (the GEDCOM file) and the designation of the proband (as the so-called starting point), a geo pedigree is created in addition to the existing views!

A geo pedigree chart on Genealogy Online looks like this:

When the mouse is held over a place in the geo pedigree, the name, year of birth and place of the ancestor concerned are displayed. The display can also be adjusted, you can choose to show provinces or countries. Below the geo pedigree, the table shows how many people were born in the relevant city, province or country.
