Is there a facility in Family Historian to enter the names of 2 people and see how they are related? Thanks.

Thank you once again Mike.

Just checked it out and it's excellent, especially when going to the graphics part of it.

I have so much to learn about what this programme can do.

A further question related to the chart it has been produced - I've checked the help file and tools and can't find an answer.

Mai,

After the chart is generated use Diagram > Save Diagram As....

There are numerous choices for what format you can save it to.

Thank you Bill.

Just when I think I know what is available something else pops its head up and I can't find the answer.

But I realise that what I must do is to click on every link and see what it brings, and not expect the one link to give me all the answers, which is what I have been doing.

Given that though, I think that I will still find some things I cant find and I will need to come calling for help.

Thank you.
