Free family tree templates

My family tree templates feature a tree (see below left) that I spotted just off the N71 between Clonakilty and Rosscarbery in County Cork. It's very close to where my paternal great grandparents raised their family.

In the full-leaf of early summer, it was giving shade to some ewes and young lambs, and I like to think my own Irish ancestors might have witnessed identical scenes as they walked this road to and from market.

Perhaps they had themselves taken refuge under that canopy once or twice, either to escape the blazing Cork sun or, more likely, to evade a drenching shower. (Okay, I'm straying into the whimsical. I don't think the tree is that old, anyway).

Either way, I decided this beautifully shaped tree deserved a place in my genealogy research, so it now stars as the centrepiece for my selection of templates, which you can see below. I hope you like the results.

Select your preferred format

Nearly all these templates are available in two formats. You can either 1) download and print a chart, ready for completion by hand, or 2) you can download it to your computer and fill in the blanks on-screen before printing it. With the latter format, you can save your work at any time, and print it when you're ready; these family tree templates are coded with a rather graceful font so they look very smart when printed.

Printing tip: You may find you need to adjust your printer's margins' settings to capture the entire family tree template.
