We display the information you give, plus the results of the research, in unique,
multi-coloured family trees. These are packed with crucial information but are also
easy on the eye.
Our family trees are created using Microsoft Word, rather than using a genealogy
software package. There are several reasons for this:
- The printed versions of trees created by most genealogy software programs are unwieldy
and don't illustrate relationships clearly. Using MS Word, a tree can be kept as
simple and informative as possible, in a traditional format that's easy to read and
fits onto sheets of A4 or A3 paper. You are presented with a tree that looks neat,
is understandable and easy to store, both electronically and in printed form.
- Almost everyone has a version of MS Word so trees are easily transferable. You can
send them on to other interested family members at the click of a button, without
having to have the "right" software.
- Trees created in MS Word can be colour-coded in any way to illustrate facts about
individuals, to your personal request
- It's easy to take extracts from detailed trees created in MS Word and simplify them
for demonstration purposes.
As well as providing detailed trees, we can also include simpler, more illustrative
trees, which can be used as visual aids to demonstrate relationships between individuals
or families. These types of trees are increasingly popular, especially as conversation
pieces at family reunions and get-togethers.
