This personal project of mine compiled both sides of my family, twenty generations, and nearly six-hundred years of ancestors and cousins. On paper, it measures 36" by 160" and was composed in Adobe Illustrator. The horizontal format makes for the most efficient use of space; vertically, a timeline establishes historic context.

As seen on Visual Complexity. Sorry, templates not provided. Please contact me if you wish to use this in a talk or publication.
