You want a snazzy family tree chart, but all the designs, sizes and prices make your head spin. Don't dismay: We've tested 11 services to show you which ones rise above the rest.
Your genealogy software probably creates all kinds of fancy family tree charts. Just one problem: Your printer can't handle paper larger than letter- or legalize, so you have to figure out how to tile your printing, then tape together a bunch of pages to make a big chart. Serviceable, but time-consuming and not exactly the most attractive display of family tree glory known to man. So you search online for chart-printing services — and come up with a few dozen companies, hundreds of price points and unlimited design options. What now?
Family Tree Magazine editors found the countless chart-printing choices overwhelming, too. So they asked me to give the services a spin, in order to help you select the right one for your needs and budget. Just like any Joe Schmo, I looked over the options and prices, and placed orders with 11 companies. (They provided complimentary charts for purposes of this evaluation.)
