What makes Charting Companion’s Charts and Reports so Unique?
NEW Descendant Fan Chart
New! One-of-a-kind Descendant Fan chart available only with Charting Companion. This is an eye-catching way of showing your whole family – with several generations, on a single page. Fan charts can be produced in 90°, 180° and 360° variations, and make stunning wall charts.
Descendant Left to Right Family Tree Chart
Charting Companion lets you create left-to-right Descendant charts that take up half the number of pages than top down reports. This also means you can create a tiled wall chart faster. Charting Companion can display up to 160 generations of family records on any chart. The top-down format for this family tree chart is also available.
Genealogy Charts with Photos
Most family tree style charts generated can include photos. But Charting Companion is smarter than any genealogy database when it comes to using photos in charts. Charting Companion allows you to customise the size of each photo you wish to display – as small or large as you choose. And if there is no photo in your database, it doesn't clutter your chart with an unsightly placeholder; it simply omits the photo. This allows you to save space and create more professional-looking presentations.
Ancestor with Siblings Charts
Charting Companion also supports charts with three colour styles by gender, generation or lineage.
Other Stunning Fan Charts
Charting Companion creates impressive fan charts that add pizzazz to your genealogy books and presentations. Fan charts can be produced in 90°, 180° and 360° variations. With access to the full range of RGB colours (16,000,000) – including gradients and bevelled edges, you can create spectacular family books or wall-sized charts!
New Embroidery Charts
Charting Companion’s new Embroidery Charts are as practical as they are fun. Now you can wear your family tree and attract the attention of possible relatives you’ve never met. You can embroider two types of charts: Ancestor Fan, and Descendant Fan Charts. Format them in quarter, half, or full-circle - your choice! The program can render up to 5 generations from your genealogy database on any one Embroidery Chart and still preserve the legibility of lettering. This is one more way that Charting Companion’s powerful family tree charting capabilities can bring your family history to life and unique to this software.
New Trellis Chart
The Trellis chart is a new way to tell the story of your family. Unlike traditional box charts, the Trellis can show all the people in your tree, even those who are not in the direct bloodline. Your ancestors and descendants are listed by row within their generation. Members of a family are grouped by columns.
