Free 9-Generation Fan-chart Pedigree from

Well, at least it will generate a color chart for you for free if you have an account with either or, since these are the places where it can get the data needed.

Of the 14 people I helped during my shift today, 3 wanted help with this fan chart.
I found two things interesting about this:
1. the number of people wanting it
2. it is not a FamilySearch product, but they came to us for help!

Point #2 is understandable because one of our websites can be accessed from the chart's website:
Still, even if it is not our product, I was glad to help. It is a beautiful chart, but needs to be printed on multiple sheets of paper unless you plan to use a microscope to read it.

Still if you have an account with either or I encourage you to take a look at it.
