We especially welcome those studying the Book of Mormon in Sunday School this year (2012) and hope the Book of Mormon Genealogy Chart enhances their study. LDS Sunday School teachers might also consider printing paper copies for visual aids or projecting the chart on the wall when it might be helpful.
You can download the chart from the link above or by clicking on the chart.
The Book of Mormon Genealogy Chart is a pdf download that is easily viewed on tablets, portables or desktops. It looks really nice on larger monitors. Please note some tablets (like iPad) do not come standard with a pdf viewer.
We have proof read the Book of Mormon Genealogy Chart many times and suspect any remaining errors lie in not listing some names in exactly the first book they occur, missing some unnamed sons and unnamed daughters. If you notice any errors, please call them to our attention via the comments below or the Contact Us tab above.
We used A Dictionary of the Book of Mormon Comprising Its Biographical, Geographical and Other Proper Names by Elder George Reynolds and James E. Talmage to make the final decision decision between someone being a child of or a descendant of an individual if it was not obvious to us from reading the Book of Mormon.

Want to Print the Book of Mormon Genealogy Chart?
Some have asked about how to print a copy of the Book of Mormon Genealogy Chart. The chart is so large (approximately 2 feet wide by 4 feet tall, actual final size is 24 inches by 49 inches) that if you print it off on a sheet of 8.5 X 11 inch paper, the text is far too small to read.
Before you print a copy at a copy shop, please be aware the chart is so tall (about 2 feet wide and 4 feet tall) that it is hard to conveniently read on the wall. We plan to release a printable, wall hanging version in December (wider but not so tall). It will be much easier to read at eye level when hanging on a wall.
Our current “tall” version can be printed by “copy shops”. For example, you can download the pdf file to a USB drive or CD and carry it to a copy shop to be printed. Here in Stillwater Oklahoma, we use Federal Express / Kinkos. Our local Kinkos prints it for something less than $10 including tax in black and white. Ask your local copy shop for a price. Just be sure to ask for Black and White. If they print it in color, it will be very expensive. You can tape the Book of Mormon Genealogy Chart to a piece of cardboard and lean it up against something to view, or just fold it up like a road map. Or, you can recognize it will be difficult to read on the wall, and thumb tack it to the wall anyway. If you are really interested in framing a copy, we suggest you wait for the new version we hope to release in December. It will be easier to read at eye level.
