The graphical family trees are PDF (Portable Document Format) files, I have to generate these by hand, "printing" the tree from GenoPro to a printer driver that generates the PDF file. Occasionally you may find that the tree is out of synch with the rest of the database, this could happen if I have added someone, and regenerated the HTML pages but not re-built the PDF. If you spot a problem please let me know - contact details are on the "contact me " page.
When I started researching my family history I used a piece of shareware called Kith and Kin. While it collated the information I wasn't too happy with the graphical presentation. I have used PAF5 from LDS (FamilySearch.org) and this has comprehensive data handling capabilities, but no ability to view large family trees. Eventually I found GenoPro and find it is a good compromise. On the downside the database has few fields which means that a lot of information has to be entered in the comments field (which is why my pages have a lot of information clustered together). It also means that when importing data from GEDCOM downloads chunks of information become "lost". In the main this means that if a person has a christening date but not a birth date in the GEDCOM download I cannot see the christening date in GenoPro, place of birth information is also hidden.
Looking at GenoPro 2 it seems that the database side is being "beefed-up" somewhat with many more fields available, however that won't solve my problem as all my data is in the old format and updating it will take a lot of editing. I like the ability to generate SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) family trees, with hyperlinks back to the data, but I'm not happy that the SVG route will allow many users to view the site easily. Also for me it would mean re-working the custom skins I have developed for each of the families and doing this using XML rather than HTML and a custom scripting language which I am just mastering.
The early version of the site was a mishmash of colour and typefaces. So I decided to give it all a clean look (a Corporate Style so much favoured by big business). The easiest way was to use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and after a lot of tweaking I got things looking the way I liked. Because the family pages are generated from the GenoPro database I only needed to add the CSS link once to the customised skins and re-generate the pages to get the whole site updated.
