Anyone have any samples of their Family Tree posted to their .Mac account?

Have viewed many sites posted to this forum and have yet to see a FULL VIEW of an entire Family Tree viewable on the web.

is this possible and does anyone have a sample using their .Mac/iDisk account?

Anyone have any samples of their Family Tree posted to their .Mac account?Go to this page: http://www.leisterpro.com/doc/users/search.php

And click "Show All Links." This will provide links to web pages of over 300 Reunion users.

No only will you be able to see what Reunion can do, but you should also get some good ideas for your own site.

Thx Much for the reply.

What I am looking for and so far have been unable to find is a Complete Family tree in which ALL desendants can be viewed in top-down format.

I have a family tree with 9-10 levels of descendants and would like to see the entire family tree display on the web for family to view and edit.

The ones I see on the Reunion list only shows a 2-3 level family tree.

Not sure if it just me, but the purpose of creating a Family tree is to see the complete tree and not one branch at a time.

Thx

Jack

As has been noted in another thread, Reunion generated web output does NOT allow other viewers to edit it.

If this really is an important goal (as opposed to letting others just view it and send changes and additions to you for you to incorporate into your Reunion file), then you need to consider something like TNG.

Here's a page on my TNG site that lists out the descendants of the first person in my ancestry called Moffat that emigrated to New Zealand:

http://roger.lisaandroger.com/descend.php?personID=I16&tree=Roger

Note that this "only" has 543 lines in it (I think). If this were an actual chart it would be unmanageable in a browser window as a graphic generated by Reunion.

Totally agree with Roger on this. A 9-10 generation tree is difficult enough to fit on paper, never mind be viewable on screen. Even assuming a very modest 2 children per family, (or an ancestor chart), a descendent chart would have 512 people across the chart by the 10th generation.

I have seen a website where the creator has used Reunion to create very long waterfall trees and output them as gif or jpg to a webpage, but cannot lay my hand on the link at the moment.

I don't know if you are looking for anything like what I have on my page. It ISN'T editable, of course, and it is only 5 generations, and side-to-side, instead of top to bottom. But if it is anything like what you are looking for, you could always play with the settings. Here is one of my charts....

http://homepage.mac.com/gildell/HGPsRelatives/PhotoAlbum16.html

to a Reunion generated chart that shows 6 generations. It did take some judicious rearranging to tighten this up. I think it works fairly well with the .Mac enlargement window. At present it is not linked directly to the database, ( http://homepage.mac.com/gildell/HGPsRelatives/WC_TOC.HTM )

that will be in the next revision.

Don't know if it's what you're thinking of, but I've also done that:
