After you have entered your Family History data into your genealogy software, GEN-BOOK can read your data directly from Personal Ancestral File (PAF 2.31/3.0/4.0) and generate a BOOK.    GEN-BOOK can read a GEDCOM file from  Family Tree Maker (FTM), Brothers Keeper (BK), Reunion, Family Origins (FO), Roots, The Master Genealogist (TMG), or any other genealogy software that will make a GEDCOM file.
GEN-BOOK can extract the information and format it into a WordPerfect file.  Your family history information is put into readable book format along with a Title Page, Table of Contents, Chapter Headings, event notes, sources, and a two- or three-column Index of Names. You can generate a book of the descendants or ancestors of any person in your database.This program allows beginners to prepare a completely indexed and organized book from their genealogy data by only answering a few personal choice questions such as the starting person and the number of generations to be included.For the advanced users, the capabilities of WordPerfect or MS Word offers unlimited manipulation and design of text to create the masterpiece you have always wanted to create.


  INDEX:     index.gif (325 bytes)   pagebook.gif (1006 bytes)
Some people judge a book by its cover.Most genealogists judge a book by its index.The first thing that we do, when we pick up a genealogy book, is turn to the index and see if it lists any of the names that we are interested in.As GEN-BOOK generates your book, it inserts an index tag near each name.After you have finished adding additional biographical information and inserting pictures, your word processor will scan through the document looking for the index tags and generate a two- or three- column name index.The index of names may include the year of birth and death, ID number, wife's maiden and married names, and the name Title (Sr., Jr., II, III, etc).The names are listed alphabetically by given name within a common  surname.

  PAGE FORMAT:                mybook.gif (2721 bytes)
The format of each page closely conforms to the Modified Register System. The ID number preceding each person's name uniquely identifies that individual. The individual's ID number has been off-set to the left for faster recognition. The superscript number, following the given name, reflects the number of generations from the starting individual. When listing descendants, the direct ancestors are listed in parentheses back to the starting person. All the dates and places, as well as, the spouses and parents are included.
When listing the children, the ID number is listed, followed by the sex of each child and a roman numeral indicating the birth-order within each nuclear family. The plus (+) sign in front of the ID number indicates that this child was married and that more information will be listed later. Those children who were not married, will list dates, places, and notes, and then not be listed again later.

BLANK LINES:         Holdhand.jpg (4668 bytes)
When soliciting information from relatives, GEN-BOOK provides a user-friendly method by inserting a blank line when missing data. You could send a chapter of your book to a cousin and ask him to fill in the blanks. It is easy to understand what information is wanted, whereas, with a family group sheet, most non-genealogists are intimidated and confused. Using this blank line method is very effective in obtaining information from relatives.
