Links for Patriarchs relevant to large family groups can be accessed from the Charts page under the People navigation heading. Links to Charts approriate to an individual are also listed on the individual's record page. Note that on occassion, a descendant chart will be listed multiple times on an individuals page. This is a result of marriage within the family line sometime in the past. After several generations, most individuals would be unaware that there is a family relationship.
