Family Tree has recently introduced a new way to display family pedigree information. This new format is called the “portrait pedigree.” This new format is in addition to the standard traditional pedigree chart and the fan chart.
It is a vertical pedigree with pictures. The starting person is shown at the bottom, with the ancestors going up. For each person, the pedigree shows the name, birth and death years (the lifespan), and the portrait photo if there is one. Like this:
To switch to the portrait pedigree and then back to the pedigree or fan chart views, you use the selector in the upper-left corner. The selector is now a drop-down list.
The portrait pedigree works like the other views.
You can click a person’s name to show the person card:
From the person card, you can:
- Re-orient the pedigree on that person, by clicking Tree.
- See the details page, by clicking Person.
- Go directly to the person’s Sources, Photos, Discussions, or Stories.
