Objective: To develop a three-generation genealogy chart for a family.

Part I: Research a family’s health history chart

1. Create a chart that summarizes one family’s health history. You
must include a minimum of three generations on the chart. If you chose
not to use your own family, you are responsible for finding a family to
base the chart upon. Generations two and three should contain
information about siblings, unless there is a situation where there is
an only child.

2. Incorporate all of the following information into the chart, if
available (if not available, state that so that points will not be
removed for not including required elements):

a. Gender

b. Place of birth (City, state, and/or country)

c. Marital status

d. Offspring

e. Occupation

f. Cause of death

g. Chronic illnesses (ex: arthritis, sickle cell anemia, diabetes,
hypertension, cancer, congenital defects heart and lung disease,
developmental delays, physical abnormalities, psychiatric disorders or
anything else that is pertinent.)

Part II: Develop an inheritance chart

1. Based upon the information obtained from the genealogy chart that
you created, develop an inheritance diagram/pedigree chart/genealogy
chart, that highlights inheritance patterns of different chronic
illnesses (ex: ex: arthritis, sickle cell anemia, diabetes,
hypertension, cancer, congenital defects, heart and lung disease,
developmental delays, physical abnormalities, psychiatric disorders or
anything else that is pertinent.) Note: track one chronic illness. You
can find some ideas of how to format a pedigree chart by searching
Google for pedigree charts/pedigree charts/genealogy charts. Some can be
downloaded at no cost. Keep the size to normal paper size and make the
format something that you can submit Power Point chart, or pdf of a
drawing that you do.

2. Develop a legend that references the following items with symbols as listed below. See Page 46 for sample legends to use.

a. Boxes = males, circles = females

b. Shade/color the boxes to indicate a particular trait or chronic illness as listed above.

c. Include each color in the legend to indicate what it represents

d. Relationships:

i. A vertical line connects the spouse or mate of a male or female

ii. A vertical line indicates children

iii. Indicate deceased members of the family

iv. Place a star over the person who is the focus of the chart

3. Include all of the family health information include on the genealogy chart in Part I.

Part III: Summarize and explain your findings

Write at least two paragraphs which summarize and explain what the
genealogy chart revealed about the health and health risks of the person
and their family. Review the colored genealogy chart and observe which
health traits/risks stand out and discuss them in relation to the focus
person. Note: “Summarizing” refers to “covering the main points” of what
you found in your project. “Explaining” refers to “making your findings
understandable and clear”.

Grading Criteria:

This activity represents 10% of your finalgrade.

There should be four pages:

Part 3
a. Summary and explanation must be at least 2 paragraphs, and a paragraph should contain 5-7 sentences on the same topic.
b. Discuss and describe the inheritance pattern (ie autosomal
dominant, autosomal recessive, multifactorial, or general
genetic/familial tendency)
20 Overall project appearance, grammar, formatting, clarity, logical flow of contents, APA style formatting

Also, copy/paste the grading criteria
chart (this chart) onto the last page of your paper, so that it can be
easily accessed while grading your paper online.

Note: This project should be typed. The cover page should be
typed, Part I can be a table that is typed, Part 2 can be typed in Power
Point or neatly drawn by hand and submitted via pdf file and Part 3
should be typed.

Staple pages together to submit. Do this at home, as a stapler
will not be available in the classroom. Do not put paper in a fancy
folder or cover.
