Family Tree Printing From A GEDCOM File

If your genealogy software program doesn't allow you to design the type of chart that you'd like printed, we can use your GEDCOM file as source material and do the chart design for you. Although not all genealogy software programs allow you to design your own charts for printing, virtually all genealogy software programs will allow you export your data as a GEDCOM file. If you're a member of a genealogy social networking site like, Geni, My Heritage or Tribal Pages, and have your genealogy data stored on one of these services, please also visit our page about these genealogy social networking sites

Your can purchase a genealogy program such as Family Tree Maker and do the design work yourself or you can have us do the chart design for you..  You can easily import your existing GEDCOM file into Family Tree Maker and be ready to do your own design work. Family Tree Maker sells for about $80 online at  If for some reason you don't want to spend the money and time, simply send us your GEDCOM file and we can do the chart design for you. Our layout and design charges are $69.00 per chartt design. Our normal family tree printing charges will be in addition to this design fee. If additional work or corrections to your data is required, additional charges will apply. If your chart is already designed and print-ready, this design fee does not apply.

Please keep in mind that a GEDCOM file does not contain any photos. A GEDCOM file isn't a design of your chart either. It is simply a database file meant specifically to be read by genealogy software programs only.

If you need assistance in designing your genealogy chart, simply send or e-mail us your GEDCOM file.  After we import your GEDCOM file into Family Tree Maker and design your chart, we will send you a preview of what your chart will look like for you to proof prior to printing.  Depending upon the dimensions of your chart, the preview will be an Adobe Acrobat PDF file.  The Adobe Acrobat reader software is free if you don't already have it.  After you give us your OK, we will then proceed with printing your family tree chart.  Here are some examples of charts which we can design for you if you're not designing your own chart.
