For a geneaology project of my familiy, I generated this fairly straight forward drawing of my Grand-Grand-Grand-Grandfather’s descendants (click for full image):
Unfortunately, this representation does not give any information about when someone lived, or how long. I tried to add this information to the graph, and I coudn’t think of anything better than drawing each person as a rectangle whose upper edge lies above the parent’s rectangle, and whose height and vertical possition represent the life span. This is the result (here you really have to click for a full view):
This is obviouly not very helpful. Does anyone have a better idea how to draw this?
