In common speech people normally don't use the correct names of the various genealogical charts. But among genealogists the following terms are used. The charts may also be presented in horizontal view. For all the chart types are also lists very common.
An ancestor chart shows the ancestors of a person, called »proband«. Starting from the bottom with the proband upwards to two parents, four grandparents a.s.o.
This structure is the same for every person.
Numbering scheme of Kekulé (a.k.a Sosa-Stradonitz-System) can be applied.
There are various numbering schemes, e.g. d'Aboville.
There are more variants that show blood kinship of a proband upwards and downwards also with children of siblings a.s.o.
Kinship diagrams are not supported by GenJ.
