Family ChArtist, a new addition to the FamilySearch Affiliates Family

Even if you have not had the opportunity to login to New FamilySearch, you may be interested in several new products that stand well on their own merits, irrespective of their affiliation with New FamilySearch. At the Family History Expo in Mesa, Arizona, I had a personal tour of the pre-release Family ChArtist program from Generation Maps from Janet Hovorka. I also enjoyed her presentation on New FamilySearch certified genealogy software.

Essentially, the ChArtist program is a do-it-yourself design program for genealogy charts. To quote the Website, "Use our easy system with hundreds of graphics and billions of combinations." The announcement on the Generation Maps Website asks you to sign up for an E-mail notification of the official release. I recall that it had an easy to use interface with lots of choices for charts from your own files.

One of my genealogy friends here in Mesa has used Generation Maps for a number of presentations is thrilled with the results.

  1. Dear James,
    We've started the countdown on our blog. We're excited about this and think it's going to be a great tool with New FamilySearch. Thanks for helping us spread the word.
