Creating Reports from Family Historian Software Package


Join John Hanson for a tutorial that shows you how to use Family Historian to create the reports that suit your needs.

There are at least 50 pre-defined reports/notes that enable you to extract your data from the Family Historian package. They range from the details of a person, a whole family, or all the people relating to a place.

But how often have you thought “nearly there but I wish …”. Well, if you don’t quite like the output you get, you can customise almost all the reports.

In this tutorial, John looks at some of these that might be of more interest. He covers how to change the input, what you can do with the output, how you can change the formatting, and even how to remove some of the excess material.

John intends to allow plenty of time at the end of the tutorial for your questions.

Note: This tutorial covers the Family Historian software package. It does not cover general family history research.
