A kinship chart makes use of standardized symbols and diagrams in order to illustrate an individual's family. This is commonly used by the archaeologists to study patterns of society and used by medical experts to analyze hereditary illnesses. To start making this kinship chart, draw a triangle if you are a male, or a circle if you are a female in the center. Write the word ego inside the symbol. If you have a spouse, draw another symbol 3 inches from it horizontally and indicate H if husband, W if wife. Your siblings must be drawn as big as 1 inch horizontal to your ego. Brothers must be drawn to the left while the sisters on the opposite direction. To further know about making a kinship chart, visit http://home.honolulu.hawaii.edu/~rob/ANTH200/e-kin.html.
