MyCanvas is a self-publishing website that enables Ancestry.com members to incorporate some of the information from their online trees into Family History Books, Posters, and Calendars. Please keep in mind our layouts won't display all of the data provided in the Ancestry Trees.

Our goal at MyCanvas is to create an attractive family tree poster suitable for framing. If we put any more generations on the posters than is currently allowed, the print would be too small to read, and the poster would be too large to frame.

We have three poster options in MyCanvas:

Standard

Combination

Descendant

The Standard and Combination Posters are pedigree charts only. In genealogy, a pedigree chart is designed to include the direct line of ancestors and not all the various branches. Once your poster has been generated, you can add any additional names and information you choose to customize it and manipulate it before you order your poster.

The different posters include:

Standard Family Tree Poster

•Starts with an individual

•Includes their direct line of ancestors (i.e., parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc.)

•Maximum number of generations for this poster is 9

Combination Family Tree Poster

•Starts with a couple

•Includes their children and the direct line of ancestors for each person in the starting couple (i.e., parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc.)

•Maximum number of generations for this poster is 7

Descendant Poster

• Starts with an individual

• Includes their partner and their direct line of descendants (i.e., children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren)

• Maximum number of generations for this poster is 4
