(Through 8 Generations)

This is an outline chart made with Family Tree Maker.  For those who are not familar with outline charts each # represents a generation.  Number of children listed are known number of children.  In the case of living individuals--only their name is listed.  Small font size was used to show the overall look of the outline chart.  To make it easier to read just hit your enlarge/increase font button. My husband's direct line is in green.
