Personal Historian

Developer's Description

Personal Historian is software which assists you in writing personal histories about yourself and other individuals.

It breaks this seemingly monumental task into small, manageable pieces and then reconstructs it into a complete, publishable document.

Personal Historian includes an extensive library of timelines, historical facts, cultural trivia, and memory triggers which give color and context to the history.

You can even bring in your word processor documents, photographs, and genealogical data to easily build on work that you've already done.
