Frodo Lives! The Ancestors of Frodo Baggins

All Hobbits were, in any case, clannish and reckoned up their relationships with great care. They drew long and elaborate family trees with innumerable branches. In dealing with Hobbits, it is important to remember who is related to whom, and in what degree.

--J.R.R. Tolkien, Prologue to The Fellowship of the Ring

I first read The Lord of the Rings when I was 10 years old (and I won't tell you how many years ago that was), and I was immediately hooked. Since then it has remained one of my favorite books, and I drag it back off the shelf and reread it every so often.

Here, then is my tribute to one of the greatest epics every written. Most of the information comes from the charts at the end of The Return of the King. The problem with these charts, however, is that they are presented in a descendency format, in other words, they show the descendants of a particular person. Frodo appears on three different charts, and there is no way to view Frodo's ancestors all at once. The purpose of this page, then, is to present a way to explore the ancestry of and relationships between the major characters.
