been some discussion of how to get a pedigree for irises on paper. I decided to
try it on a genealogy program for making (people) family trees. It's not easy.
The program isn't happy with all the inbreeding <grin>. But it's
possible. Here is a chart I made using Earl of Essex. I'm not sure I have all
the information correct and I know there are numbers for all the sdlgs that I
have listed simply as seedlings. I used the date of birth to enter the year of
introduction and the place of birth for the hybridizer's name. For flowers that
rebloom, I added re after the name of the hybridizer. I haven't yet added
family members to the same "parents" so I don't know how that would
work. You might have to treat them all as individuals or you might end up with
one being his own grandpa. The family tree maker might have a problem with
creating the tree in that case.
