Choose the Correct Hierarchy SmartArt Graphic

  1. In the list of SmartArt graphic objects, click on Hierarchy in the list on the left. This is one of the many organization chart types of SmartArt graphics.

  2. Select the first hierarchy option for your family tree chart.

Note - It is important to choose the first option in the list of styles of hierarchy charts. This hierarchy organization chart is the only one that includes the option to add an "assistant" box to the family tree. The "assistant" type of shape in the family tree chart is used to identify one member's spouse in the family tree.
