The Cross family infographic

The Cross family infographic – sharing stats based descendants from Thomas Cross and his wife Ann of 17th Century Ely, Cambridgeshire, England, including family members who emigrated to Australia in the 19th Century.

Riding on the back of the success of my previous (and first) infographic for The Barber family, which provided me with my most popular (traffic-wise) post ever on this blog, and a terrific amount of Facebook shares, here’s my second one featuring my Cross family.

The family are predominantly based within Cambridgeshire, but the data also includes a the many that emigrated to Australia in the mid-nineteenth century.

  1. Hi Andrew, read your interview on Geneabloggers. Like the idea of infographics for family stats. I’m always looking for ways to present family history visual. This worked really well.


    1. Hello edesorban, thanks for the comment, and welcome to the blog too!

      Yes, infographics are a fun way of sharing the info. I see infographics covering lots of different topics, but hadn’t noticed any for genealogy – so thought i’d put my two favourite things together on the off-chance that it would help people find genealogy a bit more interesting.

      They’re also lots of fun to make.

      best wishes
