As researchers we spend years collecting the names, dates, photos, stories and other details of our ancestors – but what do we do with it?
Leave it on the computer? Why? Why not print it out and show it off?
Some write a book, some scrapbook or create other craft items. Others create a chart. Why not add in pictures or maps … make it spectacular. And trust me, it’ll certainly get your non-genie friends and family interested and talking about it. Get one to hang on your lounge room wall, or a long one down the hallway. Or maybe you have a reunion coming up, and you need big charts printed for that. Descendant, ancestral, bow tie, butterfly, fan, circle, or direct line … get creative, there’s hundreds of ways to show off your family!!
As a genealogy retailer, a question that we regularly get asked is “who prints genealogy wall charts?”, so I thought it would be worthwhile to create a list. Not focussing on any particular country, this list covers wall chart printers from Australia, UK and the US.
Simply arranged alphabetically for easy reading, be sure to check out the really unique charts at the end of the article.

What a great list. Would like to get this done but am a way off it yet. Love the circular chart, that’s how I’ve drawn mine up.
Like the pie type but need one with at least 11 generations
If you ever decide to print one like you have on your wall I would like to buy a copy.
I NEED MORE INFO, AND COSTS. I HAVE UP TO 40+ GENERATIONS ON SEVERAL OF MY LINES AND FEEL OVERWELMED AT TIMES OF HOW TO MAKE A CHART.
Hi Judith, for more specifics (sizing and costs) you’ll need to get in touch with any of the companies listed here.
I have a large family tree on Ancestry.com. I had thought that exporting it to .pdf and having it printed at a local stationers would be easy and straight forward. The only option I see to print is a basic print on 24 pages to then tediously glue together. Is it possible and I’m missing something? or do I need to send it away to have it printed – I am out of time for that option. I would like to print it at A1. Thanks for any advice.
