The Complete Genealogy Reporter
The Complete Genealogy Reporter enables users of genealogy software and websites to create comprehensive
narrative GEDCOM reports and books with fully cross-referenced texts, notes, media, and family tree diagrams.
The reports may be configured to incorporate all cousins, aunts, uncles, and indirect relationships via marriage
or adoption, as well as any unconnected individuals, into a customized document for any subject individual in
The Complete Genealogy Reporter was created primarily to create full and comprehensive printed reports,
both for personal reference and to give to family members who may not be adept with computer and genealogy tools.
It is also a powerful tool for proof-reading the key content of a GEDCOM file.
The user interface is a simple four-step wizard-style process which reads a GEDCOM file and
generates a report to a PDF file, a printer, or a text file (proof-reading draft).

The Complete Genealogy Reporter differs from standard Ahnentafel reports (and almost all other types of narrative report) in the following ways:
- Full details of all aunts, uncles, and cousins, plus their descendants may be included.
- Thumbnail pictures of individuals may be included in the narrative.
- Indirect branches may be included in the report. (Indirect branches are the relations of people who married into the subject's family.)
- Unconnected individuals may be included in the report.
- The relationship to the subject of each reported individual may be fully described. (e.g., "Second cousin by marriage, once removed").
- Children birthdates and occupation/residence events may be sorted by year (irrespective of the order recorded in the GEDCOM file).
- Unknown names may be rationalized into a standard form. (When this option is selected, unknown first names are reported as Mr. or Ms., and unknown last names are reported as "Unknown".)
- The upper/lower cases of names may be reported in a standard form of "Jane McKie", irrespective of the cases of the names in the GEDCOM file.
- Ages of individuals at the times of events may be included.
- Dates (however expressed in the GEDCOM file) are processed and reported in a standard format of either "1 May 1888" or "May 1, 1888" .
