Basic Genogram Symbols

Basic genogram symbols carry basic information of a person : gender, birth and age, immigration, sexual orientation and pregnancy situation etc. Genogram symbols will usually display the date of birth (and date of death if applicable) above the box, and the name of the individual underneath. The inside of the symbol will hold the person's current age or various codes for genetic disease or user-defined properties: abortions, still-births, SIDS, cohabitations, etc.
