Subject: [APG] charts and reports for clients
Date: Tue, 12 Sep 2006 13:27:54 -0400
I've done some work for a client who now wants to share the results with
some other family members at a distance. The family is large and I haven't
been able to give him a 'simple' enough chart or report. The first
generation I'm presenting had 9 children, most of whom then had 9-12
children themselves. The descendant report from Legacy runs to 20 pages.
Graphical charts from programs like Charting Companion for Legacy run to 42
pages. I purchased Tree Draw but haven't had time to work with it and
haven't found it terribly intuitive so far. If anyone can suggest a type of
report or chart that they've found worked well for large families I'd
appreciate some advice. What I have done is provide one chart with the
first 9 children - then developed separate charts showing the lineage of
each child. Some of those were too big to print easily so I'd include a
couple of generations - then do another chart. The client found that
confusion despite numbering - and it also resulted in about an inch of
paper. While the client now understands the family structure he suspects
that sending off the information to others will require much more
explanation since it will be completely new to them.
