Family Tree explained by CGP Grey


CGP Grey took a lot of time to create the video from above in which he explains what the family tree is and how its built. Basically it all comes down to creating a simple graph in which you place your forefathers above you and your successors below you, with some ramifications on the sides. Naming conventions follow the “grand” rule so it’s pretty simple. It is a bit harder to know where your 4th cousin twice removed it, but there no rush as there is a big chance you don’t know who that it anyways.

You can download a family tree sheet from here.
