from Kaarle Kaila:


I have implemented Genealogic descendant and ancestor graphs using Graphviz in FinFamily. I have made som description on how to use it with FinFamily at FinFamily wiki-pages at

http://www.finfamily.fi/index.php/Handbook

I attach a descendant graph from Joseph Patrick Kennedy and an ancestor graph from Caroline Bouvier Kennedy as samples from FinFamily. The file georg.jpg is a descendant graph w/o pictures from an imaginary person Georg af Charlow (who has some common attributes with my father) from my testdatabase like the person Charles Charlow has some resemblance to myself.

If you wish to display the attached pictures or wish me to create another ones then feel free to do so. I wish to thank you for Graphviz that let's me create such nice graphs with FinFamily.

regards
Kaarle Kaila

I have this little kennedy database as a sample gedcom file on the download webpage to give international users a few wellknown persons to play with  if they wish to try out my software. I originally got it from Michael Kay who is among others Editor at http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt20/. I added the pictures and some data myself.

Attached are both the kennedyanc and kennedydesc files as you requested. I made them as zip-files so that tehy contain both source and destination files. As you email server does not accept zip-files I renamed them to anc.zip ->anc.files and desc.zip to desc.files. Hope these com through your filters.

Graphviz dot program is called from withing FinFamily with a command line such as:

dot -Tjpeg kennedyanc.txt -o kennedyanc.jpg

On page http://www.finfamily.fi/index.php/Graphviz is a description on the different colors together with instructions for finFamily users how to create Graphviz reports.
