I recently received this announcement from Generations Map and I have to say I am intriqued and hope to check out this program once it goes live and will give you a full review. In the meantime, take a read at this new web applicaton to make lovely generation charts and also take a peak the video tutorial.
Introducing Family ChArtist
Beginning March 8th, 12 noon mountain standard time you can log on to generationmaps.com and experience first hand this new web application that will make creating and designing beautiful genealogy charts easier and faster than ever before.
Take a look at our video tutorial by Mark Tucker. Check out the wonderful features which include:
• HIGH QUALITY GRAPHICS: Generation Maps offers modern, classic, colorful graphics to beautify and enhance your chart.
• FAST AND EASY: First time users can create beautiful charts in just a few minutes. Previously, chart printing required purchase, installation and juggling of various design software programs, online databases and file formats. Family ChArtist has combined all these elements for you and allows you to simply create what you want over the web.
• GENEALOGY CAPABILITY: Family ChArtist is FamilySearch Certified, applying information straight from FamilySearch to your chart. FamilySearch information can be edited as necessary. Your family genealogical information can also be entered using a Gedcom or manual entry. Generation Maps is working toward future integration with other software and picture database systems as well as genealogy software companies.
• FLEXIBLE OPTIONS: Generation Maps has created Family ChArtist with powerful, user-friendly features. You can adjust the same graphic in many different ways, using transparency, rotation, and scaling controls, to create exactly the look you want. Attractive new enhancements can also be added to each graphic to create very different charts. Family ChArtist is flexible, allowing you to add or correct information about yourself, siblings, cousins, stepfamilies, and other relatives. Additional personal information such as prominent characteristics, careers, etc., can also be included.
