Free downloadable bow-tie family tree chart

e1686d36-53b3-4ff0-a6e4-5fce770b30d1

Download the bow-tie family tree chart and start filling in your ancestors' names and details. This is the perfect tree for recording birth family and adoption family details all on one tree.

Dr Penny Walters, adoptee, lecturer and author, has written about how to trace adoption in family history in the August 2019 issue of Family Tree. Here she explains why a bow-tie tree is so useful:

"A huge dilemma for adoptees is whether to compile one or two trees. A useful solution is to have your adopted family tree and compile a separate biological one. DNA matches can be added to a biological tree. Some people utilise a bow-tie tree,  which is a great way to graphically represent the two families."

For advice on the organisations, websites and steps to take to research adoption see the August issue of Family Tree.

You may download and print as many copies of the bow-tie chart you need for your personal family history use. To get your bow-tie chart, click here.
