This Week’s Genealogy Craze – "Place" Pedigree Charts

There is a fun little exercise going around many of the Facebook groups this week.  I’m calling them “Place” pedigree charts because I’ve seen them for birth places, death places and marriage places.  The idea is to create a pedigree chart that color code your ancestors locations for births, deaths, or marriages.  Basically, you could do it for anything you wanted, cause of death, burial locations, etc.

This morning I did two of them, one for births and one for deaths for five generations.  I knew that mine would not have the colors of the rainbow like some I’ve seen but mine are BORING!!!

Here is my five generation birth place pedigree chart:

Four boring colors.

And here is my five generation death place pedigree chart:

Two boring colors.

I created my charts using Excel.  I used conditional formatting to easily color code the cells.

Go ahead, give it a try.
