Why do you need Family Book Creator?

Are you a committed family researcher, dreaming of publishing your research results in book format to preserve your hard work for succeeding generations? I guess yes. At least I never met a family researcher who would not like to have a look at his research results in book format or to pass on the research results to future generations.

However in most cases the problem is that nearly everyone is of the opinion to begin with the book production as soon as the research part is done, because of the efforts required to publish a book. In reality the research is never completed and consequently a book is never been published. Family data stored on hard disks or other storage media could become corrupted or in some way unusable and the results of your valuable research work will get lost.

That’s exactly where the Family Book Creator program comes in. It allows the creation of family books by just pressing a button. It only requires that the family data are being stored inside the Family Tree Maker application. You will immediately become aware that your research results presented in book format will give you a special insight of your family.

Of course there is no novel generated, but you have a good tool at hand that can help to pass on your research results to future generations simply by using the family data you have already entered into your Family Tree Maker database.

Family Book Creator is the first available plugin for Family Tree Maker (FTM). The plugin enables you to create sophisticated book documents without putting additional workload on your back. There is no need to transfer the data from your database into a different tool.

Family Book Creator creates a book document which allows you to publish a family book from data stored inside your Family Tree Maker database more or less on the fly in just a few steps. The plugin is exporting FTM data to your word processor in Rich Text Format (RTF); a word processor is necessary for further editing and printing.

The document includes table of contents entries, index entries for names and places, footnotes and even cross-references as RTF controls together with style information based on the descendants or ancestors of the selected starting person.

Pages by default are formatted to be printed double sided to be bound as a book. If you add additional content inside the word processor it is always possible to update the index automatically.

Family Book Creator has been developed over a long period of time and because of the expertise of various family researchers it is now easy to present your data to other family members inside lovely books. Complex relationships are represented and the books will even be watched with great interest by fellows who are not interested in genealogy at all. In particular the additional graphical output from family data in form of diagrams and the integration of existing family portraits and family photos into genealogy reports can lead to wide acceptance of your work.
