A free printable blank family tree, portrait shaped

Why not frame your genealogy for all to see!


Portrait-shaped tree template


Free printable blank family tree, portrait shape.

This blank family tree template is unusual in being portrait-shaped. While landscape-shaped trees are more common and can easily hold more information, this shape is particularly well suited to framing.

To download and open a free printable family tree in either of the versions shown on this page, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. The latest version is available, free. at www.adobe.com.

It can be filled with the names of three generations of your direct ancestors, from your parents to great grandparents.

It comes in two versions. Both are set against a backdrop of a tree in full bloom. While one is set in the photo's original colours, the other is in sepia, to lend
an antiqued feel.


Original colours

As illustrated above.

Option 1: Print off and fill in by hand. Simply download a free printable blank family tree to your computer, print it and fill in the spaces by hand. This download will be successful with any version of Acrobat Reader.

Option 2: Make your own family tree, free of charge, on screen. Save the tree to your computer and start typing the names of your ancestors into the boxes. You do not have to fill in all the names at one sitting. You can save your work and return to the tree whenever you discover more names. When it's completed, simply print and frame. Neat!

How to protect photographs

We tend to take photographs for granted, these days. But we really shouldn't. Just imagine how you'd feel if you lost that old blurry black and white of your great grandmother, or the snapshot of auntie Nellie laughing as she poured tea in your garden just weeks before she passed away.

These images are precious and they need to be cared for properly, so follow these 'Things to Do' guidelines to keep them in good condition.

  • Store all photographic materials, whether on paper or cd/dvd or memory stick in dark, dry conditions, away from heat, steam and condensation.
  • If possible, use archival quality, acid-free packaging or boxes
  • Don't put originals on display. Show off good copies, but keep the originals safely away from light and handling.
  • Bear in mind that digital photographs will last only as long as the equipment on which they are stored. Always back up your photo files or make two copies to cd/dvd or memory stick, just in case one bit of kit becomes damaged.
  • Always make copies of your photo files in the most up to date technology you have available.
