When regular trees won't do.
Gigatrees is a free web service that you can use to create your own downloadable family tree. Your Gigatree will include separate profile pages for each person, place, and source found in your database. Each profile page is organized by tabs and will include as much information as we can find in your database that is associated with that profile, including all claims, source references, external links, photos, notes, etc. We will also create and include on an appropriate tab, a census table report (CENtaR), a generation list, a family tree chart and visitor comments.
Your Gigatree will include a number of other separate pages and reports including a master timeline, a statistics page, a page showing the latest updates to your database, an must have population distribution heatmap and Bonkers, our popular data consistency and sanity report.
To build your Gigatree, you must first sign in using one of the social media authentication methods provided, or by creating a local account at Gigatrees.com. Once signed in, buttons will appear on this page allowing your to upload your GEDCOM file and build your Gigatree. The build process takes just a few minutes and when done you will be provided with a download link.
If you would like more control over how your tree is built, there are some settings that you can modify to suit your needs. You will find all of the settings, separated into categories, listed below.
A sample tree is provided as an example. It was built using an Ancestry.com exported GEDCOM file and the default configuration with the following exceptions: The "Deep Scanning" Property was enabled. The "Match Alternate Given Names For Duplicate Children" and "Ignore Non-overlapping Timelines For Duplicate Children" options were both enabled for the Database Analysis.
If you use Gigatrees to publish your tree online, please provide a link in the comments. It will help me in testing how various application specific data is displayed.
