My family tree

A fairly distant cousin invited my sister and I to supper, with another 15 or so cousins. We all know each other because our parents knew each other as they were growing up, but as the younger generation our knowledge of exactly how we were related turned out to be quite patchy. Just the job for an infographic nerd.

I am the one in red. My great-great-grandfather, in the centre, was born in 1835. We’ve lost track of the ones indicated by dotted lines (which was in fact a good thing from a design point of view!)
