Family tree chart printer Generation Maps is planning a new service that’ll make it easy for you to create decorative family trees.
Family ChArtist, to launch in early March (the exact date will be announced soon), is a Flash application you’ll use on the Generation Maps website to create decorative family tree charts. You’ll be able to print an 8.5×11-inch version for free, and purchase larger copies as instant PDFs or by mail.
The application will let you choose a design and add names and genealogical details by typing, uploading a GEDCOM, or importing information from a FamilySearch family tree (for those Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints members who have access to the “new” FamilySearch online tree-builder). Generation Maps development director Janet Hovorka says the company also is working with other online family tree services to allow data imports from those sites.
You can see several examples and get more details on Hovorka’s Chart Chick blog. This is among my favorites from her selection:
