The Complete Genealogy Reporter

Are you satisfied with the genealogy reports produced by your genealogy database software? I'm not - I use FamilyTreeMaker and am frustrated by the inability of the program to give me a report that I can edit and still create an index automatically.

Today, I heard about The Complete Genealogy Reporter. This program purports to:

You can now create a comprehensive narrative ancestry report or book with fully cross-referenced texts, notes, media, family tree diagrams, and indices.

The Complete Genealogy Reporter can incorporate all cousins, aunts, uncles, and indirect relationships via marriage or adoption, into a customized document for any individual in your GEDCOM file.

The program uses a GEDCOM file created from your genealogy database using your genealogy program and then writes a report for you based on inputs you provide for different options. The program details, operation and a sample report are shown on the web site. There is support through email with the creator.

You can download the current version of the program for free, but after 30 days you have to register it and pay $24.95 to continue using it. I'm going to try it out and see if it satisfies my needs. I'll tell you about my findings in a few weeks.

Check it out.
