And We're Back..... Introducing Family ChArtist

IT'S FINALLY READY. Introducing....
Over the next couple of weeks we are going to introduce you to our new Genealogy Chart tool--Family ChArtist. The most powerful, easy to use, fantastic, amazing, wonderful way to make a genealogy chart--easy, fast, inexpensive and even free. (Nope, I'm not excited about it ;-)) Watch here every day over the next couple of weeks you'll be all ready to give it a try yourself. We'll be announcing the release date next Monday the 22nd.

So to start out with, let me show you some of the charts coming out of this new tool.











And if you don't see what you want yet, stay tuned, we're just getting started. You'll be in charge and we'll be showing you how you can create anything you want. See you tomorrow.

Really lovely charts! Good job.

Wow! Will you be at NGS Conference in Salt Lake City in April?

I hope you will create a foundation root tree that can be built up from our ancestors. We want the first recorded married (1865)great-grandparent ancestors at the BASE of the tree, their 11 children the branches, and the grandchildren the limbs, and leafs. We don't want to show any spouses. The chart will be displayed at our annual Family Reunions. It feels more like a living tree as we grow upward.

Keep 'em coming!

Sherri--
Absolutely. We will be at NGS with a bank of computers and one of our plotters to be able to print charts from Family ChArtist on the spot.

Nappycp--
At this point a chart like you describe would be one of our custom charts. While we are rolling out Family ChArtist with limited capability, future layouts like you describe are in the works for later. But with our custom chart service we can do virtually any design you can dream up.

Thanks,
Janet

The variety of possibilities for these charts is endless. I do have a question about the background images. Will those background colors be softly muted so as not to overwhelm and compete with the family data added?

The charts are great!! Keep up the good works.

Hi Janet - I emailed you but will leave a comment just in case it goes to spam. Is there any way I can get in touch with the person whose family is represented on the chart with the photo with the building and men in the background? I think I may be a relative through the Hattons/Hattens of Gravesend, Kent.

They can email me at noiliang@hotmail.com

Thanks!
