In this tutorial you will learn how to create and add to a family tree using Genealogy Pro. You will also learn how to attach images to any individual or a family.
The images used in this tutorial and a GEDCOM file of the 'Mitfords' can be downloaded here .
In the final section of this tutorial we will publish the newly created family tree on the internet, using Genealogy Pro's in-built web publishing features. The web ready family tree will be uploaded to the GenealogyPro.net web site, with a domain name of 'mitford5', that is, the internet location will be located at http://www.mitford.genealogypro.net. You can visit there at any time to view this site.
1. Open Genealogy Pro, then create a new document by choosing
the menu, File-New (as shown below). (If you are using the file
Mitfords.ged, skip to step 11).
2. You will be prompted to save the new untitled file. Save
the file under the name "Mitfords.gpro". A new window
will appear as below. The individuals created in the chart are
all stored inthe "Mitfords.gpro" database. This window
displays all individuals in the database.
By default, a new file will create three individuals in a new
database. These individuals are "John Smith", "Spouse
of John Smith" and "son of John Smith".
