Generation paintings

Generation (genealogical) murals are the most convenient form of systematization of genealogical information. This is a peculiar list of relatives painted by generations. Also contains brief information about the person.

So that there is no confusion in terms and their meanings, we will determine that the lineage is a list, and the family tree is a diagram.

Generation painting is of two types: male and mixed.


It includes all the descendants of the male branches of the genus. The traditional numbering of descendants in the genealogy of painting is as follows: all descendants are distributed across the genus of the genus (denoted by Roman numerals I, II, III, IV …), and numeration by Arabic numerals (1,2,3 …). In the male painting, numbers are assigned only to men, and women are not given numbers and their descendants are not included in the painting.


This includes all descendants of the ancestor (both in the male and in the female branches of the genus). In the mixed generational mural, traditional generational numbering of descendants is used, as well as numbering taking into account the genus of the genus and the ratio of each member of the genus to its ancestors. It is also called the Aboville system, on behalf of the French scientist of the 20th century, Jacques d’Aboville.

Generation painting compiled by you will serve as an excellent family archive, which can always be re-read with your family.

At first glance it will seem that this work is difficult, but if you have already certain information, try it and you will see that it is not difficult at all.

Good luck in finding.
