A few years ago, I was introduced to the genealogical world. To be specific, I was employed by a software company who's business primarily provides records for the purpose of finding ancestors.
At one point, I decided that I would like to have a large pedigree chart that I could write the names of my family on. I looked for a large printed chart online and found that the cost was annoyingly high. Furthermore, the sheet I found was folded, not rolled, (something I didn't like)
I decided that my programming skills were up to the challenge of creating a circular pedigree chart. A few days later, and a refresher on trigonometry, I had a pedigree chart capable of holding 10 generations of family names. It's circular in shape, but in truth there's not a curved line on it. All of the straight lines put together make a circular shape.
After printing the chart I started the process of adding my family names to it. I was excited at first, but by the 4th generation, I realized this task was too slow. I needed a way to use the data my family had already entered at FamilySearch.org to populate my chart.
After a few more days of integrating with the familySearch api, I was able to print names on the chart. Unfortunatly, the process was manual, until now. TenGenChart.com is my chart combined with your famlySearch data. Now, you too can create a beautiful family pedigree free and in seconds.
