Family Tree Working Chart

Family Tree Working Chart

This working chart has been long in the making. We have spent considerable time getting this idea just right for customers who wish to write up their family tree by hand.

It will be especially useful where there is a desire to show siblings and their descendants on the chart as there are no predetermined family structures thus allowing you to add any number of siblings to a family. Works best for 'descendant' or 'all-relatives' charts.

The chart is printed with very feint lines and boxes that are un-noticed when the chart is filled in and completed with pencil or ink pen. Customers who are visually impaired should be advised that they may find this chart too difficult to read.

There are 22 boxes per metre on each row of the chart. When considering the length of chart required you will need to think about the numbers of children in each generation that you wish to record. We also advise leaving at least one box space between families to make the chart easier to follow. Each box is 38 x 30mm.

Comes supplied with mini sticky notes and instructions to help you plan your chart. Contains space for 10 or 14 generations.

Sizes available 24" x 1 metre, 24" x 3 metre 24" x 5 metres and now 24" x 10 metres. (these have ten generations)

Also 33" x 1 metre, 33" x 3 metre, 33" x 5 metres and 33" x 10 metres (these have fourteen generations) Instructions

Ordering longer lengths and cutting to the length required will save you money.

We recommend our acid-free pens for writing on these charts

One cardboard tube is supplied with every order, if you require extra tubes or other storage / display options order here

    Family Tree Maker 2017 on DVD - Full Version

    This version of Family Tree Maker will allow synchronisation of the tree on your computer with the online trees or vice versa using the new processes designed by Ancestry and Software MacKiev specifically for this 2017 version. Older versions (FTM 2014 and earlier) that relied on an out dated system will no longer sync with Ancestry.

    {New features of FTM 2017}
    Software MacKiev introduces FamilySync
    Last year, Ancestry announced that Software MacKiev had acquired Family Tree Maker and that together they would ensure a smooth transition for users. From the beginning, the common goal was to maintain the capability to sync Family Tree Maker trees with online Ancestry Member Trees and Software MacKiev are pleased to announce that they have done just that. Over the past year, the two organisations worked together to co-develop a new syncing technology which Software MacKiev engineers have incorporated into Family Tree Maker 2017. The new technology, which Software MacKiev calls FamilySync, will replace Ancestry's TreeSync®.

    Elegant simple colour coding which allows you to make powerful discoveries by allowing up to four colours on a single person in your tree. You can start by colouring all four lines of your entire tree with a single click on a choice of four colour groups for Ancestors. The first colour group is the classic set made famous by Mary Hill.
    And then perhaps add a colour for a particular attribute -- such as all those who served in the military - by creating a list in the Index and applying a colour to it. Oh yeah, and then SAVING that list. Testers reported being stunned to discover relationships they couldn't have guessed in their huge trees. Or finding ancestors with similar names were not from the same family after all.
    What will you discover?

    Colour code
    Go find your most faded old photos. The first tool in the FTM 2017 Photo Darkroom series is the Faded Photo Repair Tool. It does just one thing as its name implies, but does it extraordinarily well. It takes faded old black and white photos and makes them look like the day they were first printed. All with just a few clicks of three repair tools of differing intensity.
    If you're the kind that like to tinker around a bit drop down the Advanced Settings to sharpen up your photos with a few final adjustments using the sliders. The photo below went from "Before" to "After" with four clicks of the Intensive Repair tool, one click of the Light Repair one and a drag of the sharpness slider. And yes, it really is as easy as that.

    Sync Weather Report
    Wouldn't it be great if you could know when there was a problem with syncing so you could just stay away for a time and come back when it was safe? That was the simple idea behind the Sync Weather Report built into FTM 2017. Now each time you go to sync, if there's a reason you should maybe think twice, a window pops up to say so.
    There are three status possibilities:
    RED : The red window appears if the sync system is down, or if syncing is for some reason downright dangerous. This status is actually a kind of "kill switch" and syncing is temporarily disabled.
    ORANGE The orange window (below) appears when caution is in order. You can still sync but the Weather Report message system lets us tell you what's up. Whether it's a promotion or problem.
    GREEN This is a happy state: No known issues and clear syncing ahead. Actually, the green window only appears if there's a future sync storm coming your way, like a planned maintenance outage.
    The Sync Weather Report is part of FamilySync, and should keep you confidently syncing along, knowing you have a built in weatherman to tell you what the weather's like where you sync.
