If you like making charts with Family Tree Maker, you’ll love
the amazing array of additional chart types
and settings you get with Progeny’s Charting Companion.
An application that works with
Maker to provide
enhanced charting capabilities.
Family Tree Maker already has the
most extensive collection of charts
of any leading family history
software, but if even that leaves
you wanting more, Charting
Companion provides six unique
chart types not found in FTM,
including the Decendant Fan (a combination of descendant and
family tree fan charts), plus a great
collection of embellishments, and lots of special options for
Charting Companion is only the
second "plug-in" ever written for
Family Tree Maker. That means you
can access it from FTM menus and it
will work directly with your charts
as though it were part of FTM.
A number of years ago, when Ancestry wanted to enhance the citations
functionality of Family Tree Maker, they turned to
Elizabeth Shown Mills’ Evidence Explained.
Citing History Sources from Artifacts to
Cyberspace. Third Edition
Citing History Sources from Artifacts
The citation templates in Family Tree Maker are based on
Evidence Explained, the definitive guide to the
analysis of historical sources. Records simply offer evidence,
and their assertions may or may not be true. To decide what
actually happened, you need to understand those records,
and Evidence Explained helps you do just that.
"Evidence Explained … needs to be within easy reach at all times."
- Dick Eastman
