Lightbulb Distribution Hierarchy

As we know that some distributions are not built from scratch but are altered versions of previous one like Oracle has launched altered version of RHEL . It will help newbies alot to be comfortable with the list of dozens Linux distributions but arranged in a hierarchy which show that which distribution originally belongs to which old one. Does anyone has such kind of information?
