Family pedigrees


What are family pedigrees and what kind of information can I find in them?

In general, family pedigrees refer to family group sheets that are linked in a computer system. When you access an individual's family group sheet in a linked pedigree, you also access all of the records that are linked to that individual.

Where can I find family pedigrees?

You can find family pedigrees in several different places. One of the largest linked pedigrees is the Ancestral File at the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In addition, you can find linked pedigrees through genealogical organizations, or purchase them on disk from private companies.
