Genealogy Software


There are many computer programs are available which can help to organize and file information about the ancestors and relatives whom you have discovered. You input the information into the computer and the software files the people according to their relationship. You can even generate printed copies of any of the charts for your files.

One of the biggest advantages to using one of these programs is the ease of transferring the information from one person to another. If you happen to meet someone in your research travels who is a very distant relative of yours, who also has input their information into the computer, you can very easily get copies of each others information by simply making copies of their files on a CD-ROM. In the absence of a computer, you would either have to make photocopies or copy everything by hand, which would be very time consuming.

Here are some programs that you may find useful:-

Faces taken from pictures are used in the program and in all output (reports, charts, etc.), with no cropping required. The program automatically finds matches for your tree among billions of historical records and family tree profiles on MyHeritage. Matches are shown as on-screen 'hints' (to view record details, a MyHeritage data subscription is normally required - exclusive 33% discount for Family Historian users). Search for your ancestors across the Internet using the integrated Internet Search tool and new Web Search window. See family events marked on maps and observe changes over time, using a time-slider. Trace relationships graphically on charts and in reports. The new web clipping capability makes it easy to extract text and pictures from web sites, using drag-and-drop. Create professional-looking family tree books or booklets with a mix of auto-generated chapters and your own 'free text'. Creating family tree websites or family tree CDs/DVDs is easy using Family Historian's powerful wizards. The program comes with 32 highly-configurable reports and you can create your own custom reports. Use built-in scripting tools to automate repetitive tasks. Download free plugins (extensions to the program) from the Plugin Store. With its innovative and visually-oriented user-interface, Family Historian is not just easy to use - exploring and working with your family tree data has never been more fun. Multi-level undo/redo gives peace of mind and Help is available throughout.
