GENELINES is one of the most powerful research and storytelling tools available to anyone researching their family tree.

By bringing together elements of time, history and family relationships on visual time line charts, Genelines (for Windows) software can bring your family tree to life. Genelines automatically reads your family tree database so you don’t need to re-enter your family information. For a complete list of compatible family tree database programs, click here.

Genelines timeline Descendant

Genelines features a suite of seven different timeline chart formats, consisting of two BIOGRAPHICAL and five RELATIONSHIP charts.Each of these seven charts can be customized according to: timeline, historical events, personal or family events, colors and fonts. Unique in presentation, the Individual and Comparative Biographical Charts allow you to include such events as career path, relationships, place of residence, etc., and compare these life experiences with those of other relatives in your database.

You can even add historical events that were happening at different times during their lives to see how such events may have impacted the decisions they made and the directions they went.The Relationship charts let you view your family pedigrees and lines of descent against a backdrop of historical events on the local, regional or world stage.

You can customize charts according to people, line of descent or family group, personal life details, color, and the history you wish to depict.

The relationship charts can explain a great deal about your family and how they lived and even allow you to add people who are not necessarily related.


All Genelines charts can be previewed and printed in full color, in various sizes – including wall charts – or published to PDF and incorporated into a web page or shared by e-mail. The Genelines form of presentation can be much more meaningful and easier to understand than a typical text based report, and can help you draw conclusions that may otherwise have been missed.
