How does the family tree work?

A family tree is nothing but a listing of the descendants of a person or married couple. This is presented in a partial graphic manner, with lines connecting parents to children. Since most couples have more than one child and most children eventually marry and have children of their own, the resulting family tree quickly develops many branches and begins to resemble a tree (sort of).
