Wall Charts

I am very interested in purchasing Family Historian. I have been a regular Ancestry.com user but now want to progress to producing a Wall chart. I want the wall chart design to include lines connecting people, but NOT BOXES. I have attached a sample of how I would like the wall chart to appear. Can you please confirm that Family Historian will produce charts that resemble this one.

Thank you

Hi Richard,

Yes, FH can print similar charts, although I am not sure if it can have a background like the one you have in your example. I am sure someone will come along and confirm that. You could download the 30 day free trial and give it a whizz to see if it suits you and whether the charts are what you want.

Yes, and to answer GeneSniper's question you can have a background picture, with various 'fade' levels. (Diagram Options>General tab>Background has a drop-down menu, the last of which is picture.)

Welcome to the FHUG Richard.

Here is a Diagram I've just knocked up quickly with a crude background image as an example.
You can choose any background image, choose a variety of box styles, choose the text & events to include, whether to include photos or not, add box icons like your ships, and many other options.
See Knowledge Base > Diagram Type ~ Family Group Tree for a different example.

FH can produce a single-page PDF file of a Diagram Chart up to 200" x 200" or 5080 mm x 5080mm that can be printed.
