I run our families website and I am looking for software to reproduce our family tree on it. Ideally I am looking for something that will show the tree in the same way it is displayed on the GR site. I have looked until I am cross eyed and totally :-S but cant seem to find anything, any suggestions will be met with eternal gratitude and a virtual drink or two !!

Hi Mike,

one old favourite is Family Tree Maker....(FTM)

I have an old version...2005

but i think a much newer version is still available

As you are a newish subscriber,I think you might get more info from Genealogy Chat

I use the 2005 version of Family Tree Maker too and it is very easy to use and you can display your tree in a number of different ways.
