Tree SuperTools v2
Family Tree SuperTools offers powerful wall charting features and
many other exciting add-ons to users of the most popular family tree programs.
- Companion Software
Family Tree SuperTools works directly with your family tree program
so there is no need to change software. After adding or editing data in
your family tree program, simply click on "Refresh" to bring
Family Tree SuperTools up-to-date.
- Project Management Tools
Family Tree SuperTools allows you import your own data plus that from
other researchers and see/compare them without actually merging
them together. Manage multiple independent data sets within the same project.
View data sets from different researchers and/or different programs in
one master alphabetical list. Ideal for coordinating and comparing data
with other researchers.
- One-click Web Searches
Search for selected people among the largest family tree databases, including
FamilySearch.org, Ancestry.com, Rootsweb.com, and GenealogyPortal.com.
Search multiple sites at the same time for individuals or groups of names,
including all spelling variations. Access free web services to produce
a map or get detailed information about a place. No more data entry on
web forms - just point and click!
- Multimedia Slideshows
Produce slideshows with pictures, video, sound, and text taken directly
from your project or by drag-and-drop from the Windows Explorer. Control
special effects, timing between frames, transitions, etc. Includes a free
viewer to send completed slideshows to relatives on a CD-ROM.
See the big picture by displaying the events in your ancestors' lives
in the context of history. Dozens of timelines are included and you can
download others from the web.
- Turbo Searching Tools
Use the industry's most powerful "AND/OR" filtering functions
to find people based on simple characteristics or a complex combination
of settings. (e.g., Find male descendants of John Smith who were born
in Virginia or West Virginia before 1840, died in Tennessee after 1860,
and had at least three sons). Fill-in-the-blank searches lets you design
variable conditions and flexible filters. A "Query By Example"
screen is a shortcut to the most common kinds of searches and provides
a simple way to learn how to do more sophisticated ones. Save customized
filters and reuse them later.
- Heirloom-Quality Wall Charts
Family Tree SuperTools includes an integrated copy of Visual Chartform,
the powerful chart-making utility. Create ancestor, descendant box, and
hourglass charts in any orientation. Create fan charts from a small segment
up to full-circle in any orientation.
Click-n-drag any object on a box chart, edit text/titles, rotate boxes,
add additional images or boxes, draw additional connection lines, etc.
You can modify the properties of objects individually or in groups and
control their layering, grouping, etc. Editing features include any-level
zoom, snap to grid, skip page breaks, and much more.
Use dozens of simple or fancy frames that are provided or design your
own! Designate which color or frame to use for each box based on person
characteristics (e.g., males/females, your direct ancestors, Civil War
Drag-n-drop charts together to combine them. Cut/paste them directly into
Microsoft Word and other Windows programs. Print/preview charts or export
them to JPG, BMP, or other formats.
- Wall Chart Printing Service
Got charts? After you design a chart with Family Tree SuperTools, our
integrated service will print them on a high-quality large-format color
printer (up to 3'x25') at prices starting at just $19.95 per chart. Point
and click in Family Tree SuperTools to submit charts securely over the
web for the fastest turn-around.
- Color Tools
Use color to your advantage! Display the names of people on the screen
in different colors to denote selected characteristics. Specify any number
of these "accent" conditions (e.g., direct ancestors of specified
people, people born in Virginia, people who died or were buried in Massachusetts,
etc.) each with its own color. Save and restore or easily switch between
sets of accent conditions.
- Customizable Interface
Use the default screen layout or design one to suit your preference. Change
the size, shape, position, and background color of each window. Design
a custom toolbar to include buttons for your favorite features. Save and
easily restore custom screen layouts. Switch between layouts for different
purposes or different researchers in the household.
- Simultaneous Access
Family Tree SuperTools is multi-user and network ready. Multiple researchers
in the household can access the same project at the same time over a home
- Plus...many more features!
Important Note to TMG Users:
Family Tree SuperTools is not designed for you! If you have
the most recent version of The Master Genealogist, then you already
have the features that are built into Family Tree SuperTools.
Since Family Tree SuperTools can exchange data directly with TMG,
however, it makes a great gift for non-TMG researchers with
whom you want to share data.
Family Tree SuperTools uses GenBridge import technology to read data
directly from a long list of family tree programs (no GEDCOM
- The Master Genealogist (TMG) (see note =>)
- Family Tree Maker
- Personal Ancestral File
- Ultimate Family Tree
- Family Origins
- and other products.
GEDCOM is also supported but our integrated import technology almost always
produces better results.
The UK Edition adds timelines from the United Kingdom, supports
UK-style drop charts, and uses British spellings in the interface (e.g.,
