Zuzana Oros – Milan Šišmiš

Family successions and their graphic development

The book of Slovak authors Zuzana Oros and Milan Šišmiš presents the unique summary of history of “genealogical design” that means various schemes and diagrams showing family relationships – in simple terms family trees.

Authors focused on the works made and presented in Central Europe that is stored especially in Slovakia, Czech Republic, in Austria but also in and other countries. The book contains almost 200 pages, where some tens of “family successions” are presented with regard to their historical and graphical development – from the oldest including biblical family trees to the present ones.

The short text passage is followed by extensive set of plates that creates the most important part of the book. It is divided on seven parts: diagrams and trees, schemes of relationships, biblical genealogies (origin and relatives of Christ and Saints), the first genealogies (unreligious genealogies, schemes and diagrams made as manuscripts), transitional types (describing and decorative genealogies), representative genealogies (unreligious), printed genealogies, three-dimensional and multimedia presentations.

The large part is dedicated to “aristocratic heraldry”, sometimes created in very inventional way. There are also family successions of famous genealogists and masters of paint E. A. Krahl, H. G. Ströhl and more others.

The book is unique source of cognition of graphical expression of our own origins. Apart form this it can serve also as an inspiration for creating new family trees.

The Academy of Heraldic Sciences (Akademie heraldických nauk ČR, o. s.) has contributed to this book by information and examples (see www.ahn-cr.info, section Production, production of J. Knýbel, information T. Tyl).

 Price for ČR: 380,- CZK + packing and postage (according the price list of Česká pošta, s. p.)
