Best program for large format printable 10 generation family tree chart #general


Dahn Cukier
 


Hello,

The following is not perfect, but works for me.
I wrote a small program in Regina REXX to move fields.
I will explain below.

If I entered Hebrew names in the main "name" field, there
would be no reason for my own program, but I need to print
charts all in all English and in all Hebrew depending on location
of the recipient.

I use Brother's Keeper for recording information, holding
documents and photos. There is a field for "names"
including Hebrew names. I do not like the way
BK produces large format trees, so I found Agelong Tree.

------------------------
Hebrew can be used by changing ONCE the
options "Edit screen 1":

Do not use Western script for fonts- change to Hebrew
Do NOT use the normal Windows screen fonts: Lucide Sans Unicode
--------------------------

After I export from BK, I import to Agelong Tree and produce a jpg that
is currently nearing 20 meters long. I do have one family (of 7 families)
with 10 generations and no where near the height limits.

Importing to Agelong requires the import to be set to
Windows 1255 encoding. These programs work in Windows.

This works for me, BK has recorded all information and notes.
Agelong Tree may be as good, but I only use the chart function.
I paid for version 4 of Agelong, and never updated to version 5.

As I wrote above, I need all Englsih and all Hebrew charts,
I enter all names in Latin, and all entries have Hebrew names
in Hebrew in the Hebrew name field.

Both the above applications can be downloaded and tested
without cost.

I am probably not explaining this well.
If you have questions, you can write to me directly at photograve99@...

Dear fellow researchers,
What would you recommend as the easiest program to use for a Hebrew ,10 generation tree , preferably in  fan chart design, editable and printable in large format ( on blueprint plotter)? Thanks for your kind advice.

It seems to me, whatever language keyboard you have set would be the language that any genealogy program would take. Am I missing something? I just tried it out with GenoPro, the tree program I use, and had no problem using Hebrew by selecting a Hebrew keyboard through the system language setting (this is on a windows box).

As for a large format printout, GenoPro doesn't do fan charts. But if you are ever interested in a traditional tree (ancestors at the top), I have made such printouts from GenoPro by printing to a pdf file with custom dimensions, which I then print at a copy shop that has a banner printer.

I use Family Tree Builder on a Mac (Version 8.2.0.8516)  and the personal data page provides for entering data in Latin and Hebrew characters.  That is, Hebrew and English rubrics are side by side so you can enter in one or both languages for the person.

According to Cyndi's List, Duro Tree is the only genealogy software that allows users to enter information in both Latin and Hebrew characters.  You can find out more at:

I have never used it and know nothing more about it.
