No unfortunately.
It was going to be then I think it got too hard.
I might think of making one on the GCA website.
You pick from a list of parents and children.
Then we present it graphically.
Hmmmmmmmmm.

The Geocaching Family Tree (formally known as Genealogy) is being beta tested at the moment.

It doesn't contain exactly the same information as has been presented here. Basically it's you, your parent and your children. It's like that for technical and performance reasons. If you have other information that you MUST add, you can add it into your profile.

If you have grandparents, it will be up to your parent to add their parent. The same deal will apply to your grandchildren. It will be up to your children to add their own children.

It may be possible in the future to have some of this automated, but that may never come to fruition (it's very complex to code). I'd encourage you to get your parents to sign up, login and and add their details. Ditto with your children when this all goes live.

http://geocaching.com.au/cacher/caughtatwork/genealogy is a working example of my own genealogy. The layout is simple, but I'm not sure how to improve it. I can't run it like a hierarchy due to the potential depth / width issues of showing it on a screen, so it's laid out left / right which might make for scrolling up / down but never left / right (which I really, really hate).

If you check your own genealogy right now, you will be the only one listed.

When the change goes live, I'll report back and then y'all can start to update the geocaching genealogy.
