Editors' Review

If you enjoy building your family tree and sharing it with others, you'll appreciate GreatFamily. The tree-building portion can be a bit awkward. You can connect people to their spouses or either parent, but there's no sibling or child link. The marriage link offers a Divorce variable, but not a Widowed one, and you can enter the date for only one end point (wedding or divorce).

Nonetheless, with a little assistance from the Help file, you can knock out a tree with records for your entire family. Each person's record can contain biographical data, such as date and place of birth and death. You can annotate further with pictures, occupations, and the source of the information. You even can import standard GEDCOM (GD3) or GenDesigner files.

However, it's page-building where GreatFamily shines. The Reports menu lets you format your tree as a clean Flash page with pop-up information or an attractive set of framed HTML files. You also can create Word 2000 or text reports through that menu, or export the whole thing as a GEDCOM file. All this takes little time and few system resources. Genealogists and families who want to share their tree can benefit from GreatFamily.
