Pedigrees offer an organized list of the ancestors of an individual whether he or she be a domesticated animal, canine or person. It lists ancestor names in rank order depending on the closeness of the ancestor to the individual about whom the pedigree is written. In people this is sometimes called a “Family Tree”. In dogs and most animals like horses and cattle it is called a Pedigree. Usually written graphically in rank order from left to right, it can list all sorts of information about the ancestor. Registry information, birth date, sex and color are just a few of the bits of data that can be found.
