VyTräd makes building and adding to your Family Tree directory structure easy and intuitive.
Import a GedCom file into VyTräd
If you are a seasoned veteran of genealogical research, you have already built a comprehensive Family Tree. VyTräd allows you to import this tree to create your Family’s directories. There is no need to manually recreate the tree. Just export your Family Tree to a GedCom file from your software. Use the many import options available in VyTräd to build the directory tree that works for you.
You select the Root Person from the individuals listed in the GedCom file. You can choose how many generations to import or import all generations in the file. Only ancestors of the selected person and their immediate families are imported. Many options exist to configure the resulting Family Tree, including whether or not to include children, directory naming and how to handle duplicate families (pedigree collapse). VyTräd can create a text file in each directory for making notes regarding the family and your research progress and goals.
Start from scratch
If you are new to genealogy research and your family tree is just getting out of the ground, VyTräd provides easy-to-use tools to add to your directory tree as your research proceeds. Adding Family directories is as easy as clicking on a family directory, selecting the Parents’ directory to add, for example, and typing in the mother’s and father’s names. Just like that, another generation’s directory is ready to store the documents and photos you have found.
Over time, you will learn more and find additional information to preserve. Using VyTräd’s built-in tools for adding directories to your Family Tree, you will easily be able to add branches and lines to your Family Tree. Finding the directory for a Family is easy with available search tools so that placing new documents or photos into the correct directory is extremely easy.
