are a number of programs available to enable organising Family Tree
information, rather than just a surname listing as here.
Free ones I know about are Family Tree builder Claims to be the best in the world, with nearly 6 million downloads Genpro Legacy Standard Personal Ancestry File (PAF) PAF
is produced by the Mormons, Family Tree builder is Jewish. Both
are excellent programs, and the religious connection is almost entirely
transparent. I know nothing about Genpro or Legacy, good or bad.
Shareware Kith & Kin
This is the program I use. It shows the tree in a
graphical kind of way. You get a 30 day free trial then it costs £30 (about $50) If
you exceed that, it doesn't cut you off, it just nags you from time to
time, not too obtrusively, that they would like you to pay for it! Here is more information about Kith and Kin
probably missed a few, I'm not terribly interested. If you have
any suggestions or comments though, I'll be glad to add them.
are a number of Web sites with varying information, often free, some
also include family trees. I have put a limited version of this
tree on http://www.mundia.com/gb/ When I have time I'll include
more info here.
all family tree programs run in a slightly different way, it is
relatively easy to transfer data from one program to another using a
standard type of file called a Gedcom. Normally in the first
program you will find a command something like export to Gedcom and in
the second a command something like Import from Gedcom. So
it doesn't really matter which one you start with. If you try
one, then think you would prefer another, it's no problem. You
simply transfer your information from one program to the other using a
will be pleased to email you the Gedcom file for the tree shown here.
Drop me a line and ask, it's not a big file and it's quick and
easy to make..
There may be chunks that you do not want. In most family
tree programs it is quite easy to delete whole sections. (Even,
sometimes, by mistake! Backup frequently!)
