WHAT YOU CAN CHANGE
The text. Tab through the chart and fill it out with your ancestors. The names are bold so that it’s the first thing you see. The first four generations have three more rows. Two are suitable for birth and death. The last row has small text for an extra comment.
The personal portraits. Select the dedicated space, either by clicking or tabing. Choose the image on your computer. The portrait ratio is 5:7 (12mm × 16.8mm).
Edit the template on your computer with the free app Adobe Acrobat Reader. Get it here. All editing using other software is done at your own risk. The charts can be viewed on other devices, but the font may look different.
