The Who's Who section is designed to help Genoa City viewers keep track of characters on the show. Find out who's related to who, how many times someone has been married, and what pesky crimes a character committed. Plus, get a brief character history to summarize that character's time on the show.
Welcome to Soap Central's The Young and the Restless Family Tree section. In this section you will be able to browse through genealogical breakdowns of some of the most prominent family in Y&R's history. While we strive to include information about all of the past and present Genoa City families, but that is not always possible based upon information that is available. However, you will find that the "trees" listed here are more than extensive.
Each Family Tree provides detailed history of marriages, relatives, and children for all the members of the given family. When available, you'll be able to further your research by visiting the indepth character profiles from the Who's Who character profiles section.
At the bottom of each Family Tree page you will find a "Key" box that will explain all of the abbreviates and codes found in the tree. You'll also find a "Branching Out" section that will allow you to swing from one Family Tree to another.
Understanding the Y&R Family Trees
Some of the family trees have a tendency to really branch out. But don't blame us! It's those wacky Genoa City citizens and all of their marrying and cheating ways that make the trees so..so..well so bushy!
Here's a look at a portion of the Abbott family tree as well as an explanation on how to read the chart.
m. Dina Unknown maiden name
Abbott Mergeron (Divorced)
c. John "Jack" Abbott Jr.
According to the tree, John Abbott married Dina. This is represented by the letter "m
." As you move down the tree, you see that with Dina, John had a son, John Jr. This is represented by the letter "c
" which stands for child.
