Family Tree layout of Data

Are there any modules out there to display data in a format similar to the way a family tree gets displayed? I'm trying to write a CGI app that will supply a module of some sort (could be javascript, Perl, Java, etc..,) data which it will then display like a family tree. I have objects with certain charateristics I want to display in individual blocks (equivalent to individuals in a family tree) and these same objects may have child objects which will go beneath the parent. Anyone familar with any modules out there that can help create something like this? I would prefer it to be generated HTML but it could also be a generated image, etc..,. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks Eric. I was hoping to get something HTML generated but would settle on something similar to JFreeChart if available. Something you pass the values in and generate an image.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
