I looking for a simple way to typeset a genealogical tree in LaTeX.
In particular, I'm interested in typesetting a so-called "Ahnentafel", that is a tree that shows me, my parents, my grandparents, my great-grandparents etc. In other words, it is a hierarchical tree in which the number of branches doubles at each level.
Is there a package that can help me? Sadly, http://www.ctan.org/topic/genealogy is empty.
I've noted a few posts recommending TikZ for drawing trees. I've never used TikZ, and I'm reluctant to dive into it just for this purpose. But if I must, I must.
Here's an example of what I want to create:
This is a 3-generation Ahnentafel.
