5.0 out of 5 stars Super Tools is a Top Genealogy Utility January 4, 2002
Wholly Genes has given up a glimpse of what's to come in the next version of The Master Genealogist v. 5.0! Family Tree SuperTools lives up to its name as the premier utility for genealogical data exchange. Want to share your genealogy database with a cousin? You use different software? Then buy SuperTools. It imports data from most genealogy software into projects where you can compare the data and print beautiful charts.
Import as little as 1 database or as many as you like (limited only by your disk space!). The charts include fan, descendants, pedigree, and hourglass charts. The chart-printing program allows you to tweak the output to fit onto pages and add photographs or other graphics. These are great for family reunions.
If you own The Master Genealogist you have the best tool to set up data to be used by SuperTools, but it handles GEDCOM as well as native formats of so many different genealogy programs! The screens are highly customizable and then you can save the layouts. This saves time when you want to see different windows with different types of projects. Other tools include a master place list, relationship calculator, and date calculator. The master place list alone has greatly assisted me in cleaning up the place names in my database! You still have trouble remembering what 6th cousin 2 times removed means? Then use the relationship calculator on any two people in the database and let it do the tree climbing. The date calculator is always handy to figure out the birth date from the tombstone or obituary that says age: 21 years 6 months and 2 days.
If the above wasn't enough to entice you into buying SuperTools, then add in a handy way to search 5 websites for a group of names.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Family Tree Tools Available October 1, 2003
This program is great. Unlike many other genealogy programs, it can do many things that others can'tFor starters, it can read (directly) data from a number of other programs (TMG, FTM & PAF among others) without having to be re-entered or without using an intermediate file (GEDCOM). It can create slide shows of the entire family to display during family reunions from its own files and/or from other files on the computer. The charts that can be created are excellent and can even be modified as desired by moving, adding, or deleting information on the chart after it is generated and before it is printed. The chart program used to produce the charts is an included free standalone program that is one of the better graphics programs available and by itself is worth the price of Family Tree SuperTools.
My main use of this program is as a gift to some of my relatives and friends who don't use The Master Genealogist (TMG). This way they can read my data from TMG and compare it with their data from another program. A number of them have switched permanently to TMG which has even more capability than Family Tree SuperTools. But all have said they like this program.
As for Customer SERVICE, I got it when I called the vendor for help. One relative happend to ask a question on the RootsWeb mailing list for Family Tree SuperTools and they received a phone call within an hour. Of course, not everyone will get service like that, but it impressed me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Both Analysis and Display! October 2, 2003
This two-in-one tool provides both analysis and display of your family history data. It lets you import your data directly from many popular programs - there's no loss of data from GEDCOM transfers. You can import several different databases - yours, those received from cousins, and those downloaded from the Internet - and keep them separate so you can examine and compare them.
Analysis tools include side-by-side display, filters, color coding using a variety of user-defined criteria, and Internet searches. You can compare names, dates, facts, and sources from different databases. Or you can search your own data for people in specific places or times to look for connections. Just being able to color-code people who are ancestors of a given person, lived in a given town or state, or the like, turns the display itself into an analysis tool.
As for output, my favorite is the variety of highly customizable "box charts" - Ancestor charts, Descendant charts, Fan charts, and more, each with seemingly endless numbers of options. And once the chart is generated, you can edit it further, moving, adding, or deleting elements, to get just what you want. You can print them on your own printer, or send them to the Company's printing service for beautiful wall-size charts at reasonable cost. I've had some done for my own walls, and given them as gifts to family members. They loved them!
Multi-media isn't my thing, but if it's yours, you can create "slideshows" with photos, sounds, and other media which you can display or send to others. The media files can be either in your genealogy data or elsewhere on your computer.
All in all, a very useful tool at a reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great add-on to Genealogy programs October 3, 2003
I've used Family tree supertools since shortly after it came out. It is a utility that any user can add to their bag of tools whether to get a different set of reports or to review their family history data in a different light. It is a sensational add-on to almost all programs.
Wholly Genes works hard to please their customers and this program, like their others, is a worthwile addition to your ancestor research tools.
