How to make a family tree online using Lucidchart
Compile and organize your family history research to go on your family tree. Include specific information for each person, like dates, names, pictures, and geographic locations.
Start from scratch or choose a template
Customize a template or create your own family tree by dragging shapes onto the canvas. Start with the youngest generation, and then add lines and text to depict relationships as you move to older generations.
Add details about your family members
Insert text boxes throughout your family tree with the information that you gathered earlier in the process to make your family tree as thorough and detailed as possible.
Collaborate with family members
Fill in historical gaps and ensure your family tree is correct by collaborating with other family members. They can leave comments or edit the diagram in real time for immediate feedback.
Distribute your work
Give your family members a chance to reflect on their genealogy by sharing your work via email or a published link, or embed it in the family website for widespread viewing.
