Genealogy Charts - Page 1
This will be collection of charts that will show the relationships of
the Pfenninger family going back in time. There are some charts
that I still need to create. I will post the one I have ready below.
First, A word about the charts.
To read the charts which are included with each Family section, start at the left hand side. This
is the most recent time period. As you go towards the right on the chart you are going back in
time. Each marriage is grouped in a "c" shaped bracket and any children from this marriage (or
partnership) will be a line extending out from the left hand side. As a convention, I put the male
on top and female below in the marriage bracket. Children's lines extend out to the left with the
oldest child on top and then descending in order of birth. Some charts will have a married
couple who are the focus of the chart. You will then see multiple children and grandchildren to
the left of the chart. Otherwise the charts show a couple and the child from which the immediate
family is descended to the left. Other children of the couple will be ignored in this case. The
charts in general are following the path of the DNA as it spirals into the future generation after
The following chart illustrates this. All of my charts will follow this general organization.
This chart looks at the ancestors of James Wilkinson and his two wives, Luella Adams
Wilkinson, who died in 1902 and Minnie Williams Wilkinson, who died in 1953. It shows the
five children, each of which went on to be the beginning point of a new family line.
This is a quick paste up of a chart I will be working on. In this one, we see the family lines of
Hassel Wilkinson Pfenninger's mother Luella Adams Wilkinson and her paternal grandmother,
Angelina Hubbard Wilkinson. There is a pirate at the end of the Hubbard line, make sure to
check out Jan Jansen Van Harlaam's story. You can even google his name and find information.
He was a bit of a surprise to find in the family history.
You can click on the above chart image to see an enlarged higher resolution version. I am
working on a new version that should be easier to read.
