Family Historian is a new kind of family tree program, with a new and different design philosophy. It was launched at the Society of Genealogists Family History Fair at Westminster, London in May 2002. Over the years it has been updated, and now we are currently on Version 6.

Family Historian has several unique features that are really powerful and user-friendly. For example, add people to your database by simply clicking and dragging away (up, sideways or down) from an existing person in a tree. That's right, data entry in the trees themselves, just as you would on paper!

Family Historian comes with extensive on-screen help.

We believe that Family Historian offers the best diagram (or chart) facilities of any family tree application. In Family Historian, diagrams are tightly integrated into the way you work. You use them not just for printing, but also for browsing and editing. As well as Ancestor, Descendant and ‘Hourglass' diagrams, Family Historian also has a unique All Relatives diagram, which really does allow you to view all your relatives (including in-laws) in a way that looks great and is easy to understand. Relatives of the same type (all first cousins, all second cousins, etc) are laid out in the same row; so you can read off how people are related, from the (optional) row labels.
