Genealogy Charts for Microsoft Office
Family tree charts are available for popular Microsoft Office apps PowerPoint and Excel, as well as Visio. These are available via Office Online in your browser, and can also be downloaded through the individual applications by searching for “family tree" in the Templates section when you open a New document (File > New).
The advantage of using these documents is that you can use the options available in each application to complete the charts by adding details.
PowerPoint – Four family genealogy charts are available from Office Online for use in PowerPoint. These can be downloaded and edited as pages of a presentation that might then be emailed to family members or viewed on a projector.
