Kinship charts, also known as kinship diagrams, show relationships. A kinship diagram, which is similar to a family tree chart or a pedigree map, can be used to illustrate your lineage. Anthropologists utilize them more frequently to easily draw out relationships during interviews and to depict a culture's kinship structure without displaying specific names. These diagrams determine how we interact with others via descent and marriage. This is a basic type of social organization. Consanguine or blood relations are relatives who are related to us by descent (parent to child). Anthropologists frequently investigate the number of ties that exist between people.
