"We have found what we consider to be the most versatile
chart creating program in the world. We use Genbox commercially to print family
tree charts for customers worldwide and we have not yet found a program to beat
Genbox for the variety of charts and chart options that the program is capable
Ron O'Neill, C.E.Owww.genealogyprinters.com
"Most genealogy software either produce great graphical charts or offer
useful tools for organizing your family history, but not both. Genbox has
quietly emerged as one of those rare genealogy programs that handle both charts
and organization with aplomb."
Family Tree Magazine
"I was extremely impressed with this software and found that it had all
the capabilities that an experienced genealogist would need. It appears to be
easy to learn... It is an excellent value for the price.."
"Download this program to see how versatile it is. I think you will find
Genbox Family History will support all of your database needs, as well as offer
spectacular charts and reports of your data."
David Allen Lambert,
New England Ancestors
"The design of Genbox has been influenced by the NGS GENTECH Data
Model, and embodies much of the current thought on how a genealogical
database should be structured. It is designed to permit the recording of all
evidence as it is gathered, thus allowing the researcher to track the progression
of a research project from its inception to the final assertion."
"The sheer ocean of information you can enter into Genbox Family History
is enormous... Sourcing your research is paramount in genealogy and Genbox
enables you to record this in as much detail as you require... This program is
far superior to many other genealogy efforts we've seen over the years."
Basics 'Family Tree'
"Genbox is a
complex, unique and evolving genealogy database program...Many of the interface
elements can be customized... The default sentence template for events is shown
and you can preview the sentence and footnote... As expected, a program that
evolved from a charting program has a wealth of graphical charts and an
extensive set of reports."
"I really did
have fun creating all the different types of charts available...Genbox is a
full-featured product and a powerful one at that. I believe its strengths come
from the expansive amount of preferences allowable..."
Family Tree Connections
Genbox Family History 3.0 to be an excellent genealogy program. It tracks almost
all the data elements that experienced genealogists expect. It is easy to use
and has a wide variety of printed charts and reports, along with Web reports and
support for multimedia..."
"I have been using GENBOX for some time now and I recommend it without
any reservations whatsoever.
A thoroughly brilliant program, with many facets that I have not seen in any
