What's New in Version 5.0


  • Share CD's & DVD's - Create a CD or DVD of all of your data and distribute it with a FREE version of Family Tree Legends. Family members can just pop in a CD and a special version of FTL will immediately launch and let them view data, make unlimited charts and reports, and print anything they'd like. There's never been a better way to share your hard work.

  • Share CD/DVD's


  • Fan Charts - This was our most requested feature prior to the release of version 5. We are very excited to offer this entirely new charting type. Multiple implementations of these charts including Ancestor and Descendant and 1/2, 1/4, and 3/4 versions with many formatting options to choose from.

  • Take your family tree with you in your pocket! - Going to the library? On a research trip? Headed to a family reunion?
