The book report creates a single document containing a collection of graphical and textual reports.

Graphical Reports

Graphical reports represent information in forms of charts and graphs.

Ancestor Tree

The Ancestor Tree report generates the chart of people who are ancestors of the Active Person.


The Calendar report produces a calendar with birthdays and anniversaries on a page by month.

Descendant Tree

The Descendant Tree report generates a graph of people who are descendants of the Active Person.

Fan Chart

The Fan Chart report produces a chart resembling a fan, with Active Person in the center, parents the semicircle next to it, ans so on, for a total of five generations.

Statistics Chart

The Statistics Chart report can collect and display a wealth of statistical data about your database.

Timeline Chart

The Timeline Chart report outputs the list of people with their lifetimes represented by intervals on a common chronological scale.


These reports are related to GraphViz.

Family Lines Graph

The Family Lines plugin was created to generate easy-to-follow graphs. Note that FamilyLines does not display all of the people in the database -- instead, this plugin generates smaller family trees, with many options to try and restrict the number of people included. A typical use of this plugin is to generate simplified graphs printed on large plotters.

Hourglass Graph

The Hourglass Graph generate an hourglass graph using the GraphViz generator.

Relationship Graph

The Relationship Graph creates a complex relationship graph in GraphViz format and then converts into graphical output running it through the GraphViz dot tool behind the scene.
