Many people feel a special attraction for genealogy. I understand that: tracking your origins and see who and where you come from can be very exciting. And now it's even easier with software tools like Itsourtree Home Edition.
With Itsourtree Home Edition you can create a complete genealogical tree, though I must warn you this task is going to take a while. Not only because Itsourtree Home Edition can handle loads of data for each person you add – which is good – but also because it may be a bit confusing to use at first – which is not that good.
It took me a while to discover, for example, that you create the tree by entering the ancestors of the first person you add, and not the other way round (entering descendants to that first person) which is how every genealogy tool I've tried so far usually works.
Despite this learning curve, once you get the knack of the program you start realizing how good Itsourtree Home Edition is. Each entry in the tree is highly detailed, featuring all the information you may need: birth date, marriage, siblings, children and also special areas for personal notes and photos.
These data can be formatted for printing, and Itsourtree Home Edition also lets you generate several sorts of lists and statistics, but unfortunately I couldn't find any way to print the tree as an actual tree. At least you can export data to XML and CSV.
Itsourtree Home Edition may not be as intuitive as other genealogy tools, but it's definitely a complete app with which you can trace back your personal history.
