Create beautiful family tree charts, including Family Historian's unique 'All Relatives' charts. Smart trees automatically adjust as you add or modify records, or reposition boxes and branches. Use diagrams for browsing and exploring by expanding or hiding tree branches. Click-and-drag to add relatives. Add pictures, videos and other multimedia. Link each face in pictures to your record for that person. Faces taken from pictures are used in the program and in all output (reports, charts, etc.), with no cropping required. The program automatically finds matches for your tree among billions of historical records and family tree profiles on MyHeritage & Findmypast. Matches are shown as on-screen ‘hints’ (to view record details, a MyHeritage or Findmypast data subscription is normally required). Search for your ancestors across the Internet using the integrated Internet Search tool and new Web Search window. See family events marked on maps and observe changes over time, using a time-slider. Trace relationships graphically on charts and in reports. Web clipping capability makes it easy to extract text and pictures from web sites, using drag-and-drop. Create professional-looking family tree books or booklets with a mix of auto-generated chapters and your own text. Creating family tree websites or family tree CDs/DVDs is easy using Family Historian's powerful wizards. The program comes with 32 highly-configurable reports and you can create your own custom reports. Use built-in scripting tools to automate repetitive tasks. Download free plugins (extensions to the program) from the Plugin Store. With its innovative and visually-oriented user-interface, Family Historian is not just easy to use - exploring and working with your family tree data has never been more fun. Multi-level undo/redo gives peace of mind and Help is available throughout. This is a Windows product. It does not run on the Mac. A CD drive is required for installation.

Family Historian meets all the requirements for this type of software and a somewhat attractive interface. I found the Family Historian interface to be similar to the now defunct Master Genealogist and thus somewhat cumbersome.
Family Historian does not provide the option to customize the appearance of the interface colors available in other companies. Flexibility in entering some data is also missing.
The software, like most similar software, provides links to genealogy websites and sharing information with others researching the same families. Such sharing is unreliable because mistakes in one person's data are copied by others so all are incorrect. There are numerous sites where actual documents, other than the census, can be viewed and often downloaded. FamilySearch.org is one such site and is free to use.
As with other types of software Family Historian is a matter of choice. As mentioned, it is simply a tool for creating a specialized database. It didn't fit my personal preferences.
The space for each person includes an "Occupation" blank. However, in addition to the person being edited every occupation for every individual will be seen in that space. The list gets longer with each person added to the database. There is a similar arrangement for "Facts". This results in some very long lists. For some reason there are three separate windows listing the available facts, one of which is marked "Hidden" for no apparent reason. Those are the reasons that I downgraded my initial rating.
Inputting information into the program itself is fairly easy and understandable, if you have never used a family tree program and need to export it to this program.
This was not a good fit for me, and ended up wasting $50 on the program and $24 on the book! Not a happy camper!
