Mit diesem Programm kann man alle für eine Person eingegebenen Lebensereignisse in dort sogenannten ‘Chronology Charts’ ausdrucken lassen. Das ist eine sehr gute Funktion, die längst nicht von jedem Programm angeboten wird!

Im folgenden Link sind Beispiele dieser Charts aus meinen Tests zu sehen:

Biggest Pro: Unbegrenzte Anzahl Partner pro Person, Kinder pro Familie und Eltern pro Kind (biologisch, adoptiert, Stief-, Pflegekinder, etc.).

I have been using Scion for over a year. This is a well thought genealogical application with all the essential features of a family tree building software. The data capture screens are intuitive and well designed. It is better suiter for the individual who likes to integrate GEDCOM files and do clean-up and standardization work. The merger of individuals shows some weakenesses as it looses some of the dependencies (like family members and marriages). If you like to work out of a USB key, this is an application you should consider. Frequent back-ip are recommended since it tends to corrupt large files.

Biggest Pro: Fast loading. Great for data capture and cleaning up Gedcom files. Free and powerful.
Biggest Con: Works only in English. Performance declines after 10k records. Some annoying idiosyncracies in Gedcom export.

I really like this program. Highly recommended, especially if you are working on larger family trees. The designer has thought of pretty well any type of information that you might want to record.

Biggest Pro: Easy to navigate, stores enormous amounts of data using little memory, easy to import and export GEDCOM files.
Biggest Con: If what you want is an attractive visual presentation of a very small and simple family tree, this probably isn’t the right program for you. For larger projects, I suggest using this to store and edit all your raw information, then you can always easily export it to a different program to make a graphically “prettier” family tree.

I have used and tried out many DOS and windows genealogy programs over the last 20 years.

Some were good, some were basic, many were awful - and most are no longer available.

I stayed with PAF for many years but it was now time to get something better.

I didn’t need all the bells and whistles, so Scion was ideal to sort out my tree of about 2500 people and 600 families.

There were wrong names, unconnected people, wrong dates, all sorts of things that I was finally able to put right using Scion.

If you want your hand held, fancy reports and signs, or a huge program then this is not for you.

Otherwise it’s great.

Biggest Pro: Very thorough, good audit and other reporting, small footprint
Biggest Con: The data file size is larger than other software, need to use it for a bit before all becomes clear

After figuring out to enter, then connect people. I love it! The only reason I don’t give it five /five, is the mere fact it encourages same sex unions to be entered.

Biggest Pro: Features, webpage creation, small “footprint” on my harddrive.
Biggest Con: the way the creators of the program seem to encourage same sex unions.

I don’t think it creates charts that are useful for me. I felt it promised far more than it delivered. It sounded good on paper, but on my PC? I am not going to keep using it as it is so disappointing. I guess you get what you pay for,

Biggest Pro: free
Biggest Con: the charts and navigating to find other family is very basic.

Excellent. Pedigree, descent, sources, attachments and all from a usb

Biggest Pro: it runs on USB
Biggest Con: no multiple selection for deleting rubbish notes imported with your gedcom
