    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Impressive features

    Having previously used other Family Tree programs, this is mega times better. Excellent source facilities enables me to record, sort, and retrieve info as and when required. GEDCOM facility atlast, and so far no problems with compatibility or merging. Quick start tutorial (hardcopy) very useful for initial familiarisation. Queries function easy to use once data established. Some features require desktop expertise but once you've got your info in there, the manipulation tools and report features of this program are outstanding.



    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    By far superior...

    I bought Family Historian after previously using another piece of software that wasn't up to the job. I was looking for something specific in buying it - I was after embedding pictures into the tree rather than just linking the files to the tree, and I also wanted a way of viewing all family connections on one diagram, which couldn't be done with the other software.

    Remarkably, everything I needed could be done, and more. I would very much recommend this - everything is simple, user friendly, but at the same time comprehensive to any and all information you wish to put in.

    Something that for me makes it an irresistable offer is that Callisto Pie are offering a free online upgrade to the next version when it is released. It means no extra costs when this software needs upgradiing - something to consider if you are planning to do this long term. Also, 100% GEDCOM compatible means you are using a universal format so if at some point you need to share data to get further up your family tree, that can be done.

    Well worth the price.



    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Family Historian 2.1 : A step in the right direction

    Family historian 2.1 builds on the excellent base established by 2.0.7.

    Adding the ability to produce flexible reports including an Family Group sheet which can include photographs, source images and full details. In addition the Individual summary can show all the details for a single person, plus a variety of other Ancestor and descendant type reports, this release handles to a large extent the lack of easy reporting in 2.0

    In addition the new Lists function which lets you build lists of people, sources and families are great for tracking things to do, and points of issue in your research.

    One minor thing Family Historian does not have the ability to produce web sites directly, although it can produce single HTML pages, its use of GEDCOM means there are many free and low cost programmes to choose from for this task, so this is not a great drawback.

    I have used 2.0 and now 2.1 for 6 months and with in a few days of receiving the program had completely stopped using my previous Family Tree Software. With an active and friendly mailing list, this is the best family history programme I have used.

    £50 well spent in my opinion.
