Anthropologists use them more frequently to easily draw out relationships during interviews and depict a culture's kinship structure without displaying specific names. Fillable Kinship Charts like this one determines how we interact with others through descent and marriage. This is a basic type of social organization. Consanguine or blood relations are relatives related to us by descent (parent to child). Anthropologists often examine how many ties there are between people. Kinship charts emerged early in the history of anthropology, at a time when social scientists frequently conflated sex and gender.
