Project Description

pedigree takes a [yaml][] file like that in examples/example.yaml ([source][]) and outputs a few messy visualizations that do not favor patriliny over matriliny. See examples/ for example output.

If you’re in a hurry to play,

pedigree -y examples/example.yaml


  • .html file: a [d3][] visualization that can be opened in a web browser
  • .svg file: a “Sugiyama style” tree that can be opened in a web browser
  • .dot file: the [dot][] file used to generate the .svg file


You must first install [graphviz][dot] via

sudo apt-get install [graphviz][dot]


pip install pedigree

pedigree –help will tell you your options.


  • Don’t put all your genealogical data in one text file that you manipulate via a python script written by some idiot on the internet. At least make copies of the one text file.
  • This can only recognize the relations x is the mother of y, x is the father of y, and x is the spouse of y. It has no concept of siblings or partial siblings.
  • The .yaml file depends on every name to be unique, so you may need names like John Smith (2) and John Smith (1).
