Creating a report

TreeView has a range of reports and charts you can generate, allowing you to display the information about your family tree in different ways. They are ideal for sharing with others.

  1. To create a report, click the 'Reports' button on the toolbar.
  2. You can then choose the options for the report using the panel on the left hand side:
    • Start Person - choose the start person for your report. For example, if you want to generate a narrative report from a particular person, choose this person as your start person.
    • Report Name - choose which report you want to generate.
    • Report Type (Narrative Report only) - Choose whether you want to show ancestors or descendants of the start person.
