Generations Family Tree Grande Suite 6.0 w/ Family Quest Archives

Generations Grande Suite gives you the most complete set of research tools and resources: with 15 CDs containing over 200,000,000 names. Whether you're just starting to investigate your roots or have been researching them for years, Generations Grande Suite offers the easiest way to explore and share your unique heritage. The core Generations program handles basic data entry in a way that will be familiar if you've ever seen genealogy software. You use Family Cards, which contain data on the individual and spouse and their parents and children. If an individual marries more than once, you must create a new Family Card.

Generations offers a generous collection of events and facts and an intuitive way to add new ones. Less obvious to a beginning genealogist is the importance of recording your sources of information: A good genealogy program must have a simple way to store detailed information about a particular source, and then refer to it each time it applies to a piece of data. Generations handles this well.

Easychart - Enhanced Hourglass Charts - ancestors (*all blood relatives* -- including aunts, uncles, great aunts, great uncles, cousins etc.) and descendants of a person all in one chart! This unique chart format is available only in Generations G.S.

Timeline Charts - lets you see whose lives overlapped and gives the ability to plot in major events in history.

Enhanced Pedigree Charts - even more than a straight pedigree chart, this format shows siblings, aunts, and uncles - it gives a broader perspective than a traditional pedigree chart.

Plus, many new features in all the chart formats have been added such as captions with lines and arrows, ability to include any field in the chart boxes, coloured text in the chart boxes, coloured lines and shadows, and the ability to independently colour any box, border, or line.

On top of these new features, EasyChart still offers all the flexibility of the past - ability to move boxes anywhere you'd like; ability to place and re-size photos anywhere you'd like; ability to change the font sizes in some boxes (but not all) if you want to bring attention to a particular person or part of the family, and many other tools of great flexibility.

Easytree - The new EasyTree provides lots of new and improved report formats including: Place List Report; Statistics Report; "Tiny Tafel" report generator; and Ahnentafel Reports up to 99 generations. Plus, Generations now has "sensitivity braces" that give the option to omit private information from printing and exporting.Internet Family Trees - the ability to automatically generate family trees for the World Wide Web that you can click navigate just like family cards in Generations.

Date-checking validity and feasibility (automatically warns you if you enter a date incorrectly such that a child is born before the mother was, or a person lived to the age of 350 years). This version also supports Hebrew dates and conversions.

Numerous data entry enhancements including longer field lengths for names, places, events etc; ability to customize the family card view to your liking; user-definable fields to add events and facts that don't already come in Generations; family-level notes and events; improved sourcing with lots of templates as well as ability for free-form notes.

Plus numerous improvements over Reunion 4 and Generations Deluxe have been added. Family files are now virtually limitless - there's no longer a problem after entering 30,000 names. The program also handles longer names as all the fields are now 255 characters. You can have a lot more children per couple; more spouses per person; more photos per chart; and many other areas so that you have the room you need to document your family history.

Generations World Name Index (Gwni)We're very excited about releasing this brand new index. The Generations World Name Index, or GWNI (pronounced "Gwinnie"), as we affectionately call her, offers more than 200 million names and resources to get you started on, or help you find more information about, your family tree.

The Bonus Family Quest Archives is a five CD-ROM set includes the Generations Family Quest Archives Census Index extracted from the 1790 United States Federal Census and 4 disks containing Generations Family Quest Archives Digital Microfilm comprising the United States Federal Census Schedules; North Carolina and Pennsylvania; Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York; Connecticut, Maine, and Maryland; and Rhode Island, South Carolina and Vermont.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']
WHAT YOU GET:

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


  • SHIPPING:

    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
