The Complete Genealogy Reporter

The following examples are reduced in size for illustration purposes only.
Reports may be produced in Catalan, Czech, English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Slovak, Spanish, and Swedish.


This example of the narrative section shows most of the processing and formatting capabilities of The Complete Genealogy Reporter.  The individuals included within the report are grouped within generation and sorted by relationship to the subject individual in order of closeness of the relationship.  A sequential reference number is assigned to each individual, and this forms the basis for all cross-referencing. 

The relationship of each individual to the report's subject is fully described, and the data content of the GEDCOM file is converted into flowing narrative.  Where possible, the age at death of each individual is calculated and reported.  (The Complete Genealogy Reporter includes options to sort reported life events and children's births into date order.)

Individual and family notes may be included within the narrative, or cross-referenced from the narrative to an appendix of the report which contains all notes.

Picture media items may be included in the report as an appendix.  When included, the presence of a media item for each individual is noted within the narrative for that person.

Family tree diagrams may be included in the report.  When this is the case, the corresponding tree diagram reference numbers are included within the narrative.

Each page of the media appendix, when included in the report, is produced with six items per page.

The reference number of the individual to whom each item pertains is included with the title description of the media item, so that one can easily reference back to the narrative section.  The media items are reported in reference number order.



Family tree diagrams may be included in the report.  When included, these are produced two per page and each spans up to four generations.   Each individual's birth and death years are shown (if they were found to be recorded in the GEDCOM file).

The report narrative reference number is also shown for each individual to facilitate swift referencing back to the narrative section.

Within the tree diagrams section, inter-tree reference links indicate continuation trees.  In this example, the numbers in angle brackets below the children boxes indicate which tree diagram shows each child as a parent.



A full index may be included in each report.  Also, indices of places and dates (not shown here) may be included.

The index is sorted by last name and first names.  For each individual included in the report, the index shows the narrative reference number, the tree diagram reference number (if tree diagrams are included in the report), and the relationship to the subject.
