A family tree (pedigree) is an important tool for families and their healthcare providers. A family tree is a useful way to document medical and family histories by using symbols. The family tree can be used by healthcare providers to identify possible patterns of disease in a family and possibly lead to treatment or prevention in certain individuals. It is also a helpful way to raise awareness among individuals and families about the specific health concerns in their family.

Example of a family tree documenting congenital heart disease in the family.
