Genbox Family History 3.0 Released

CINCINNATI, OHIO February 8, 2003 -- Thoughtful Creations today announced the release of Genbox Family History 3.0, a full-featured windows application for managing family genealogy information and producing charts and reports. This major new offering in the genealogy field includes data entry for multiple names and parent relationships, witnesses, templates for formatting event and source citation information, and tools for organizing research. Multiple data views can be opened at once. Charts offer a large number of options, including source citations, box widths sized to content, multiple key individuals, legend box, multimedia, wall, fan, timeline, and book layout. Chart types include ancestor, descendant, related, convergent, and "everyone". Charts can be "pruned" after generation. All of the common genealogy reports are provided, as well as calendars and customizable "other" reports. A date and place context processor removes redundancy from generated narrative reports for a more natural flow to the text. Powerful query and list processing capabilities add great flexibility to chart and report production. Output can be saved in graphic formats, rich text (RTF) and HTML. Data can be imported and exported in GEDCOM format.

A consistent and attractive user interface based on tabbed dialog windows and a minimal number of "modes" makes the product easy to use, while the event and source templates, research tools, storage for conflicting data, and support for accepted genealogical publishing standards establish the product as a serious offering for the professional researcher. 

Genbox Family History 3.0 is available for download as a 30-day fully-functional evaluation version. Registration is $59.00.  A full set of chart and report examples, as well as screen captures of the product, can be found at the website:
