Add pictures and movies.

Easy to climb the tree.
Use the “tree view” and click to navigate up or down the tree. Always know where you are in the family file.
Share stuff on the web.
Reunion automatically builds reports that you can upload to your web site or to Dropbox for sharing with others. All the necessary files, images, and graphics are generated and linked for you inside one convenient folder for you to upload. Choose from many elegant designs.
Easy to find people.
Quickly find people by name or perform advanced multiple-criteria searches. For example, you could search for “all males born before 1800 in Boston” or “all couples married in Sacramento with adopted children.”
Search the web for records.
Pick any person and Reunion will help you to search genealogical resources on the web (like FamilyLink, FamilySearch, Ancestry.com, etc.).
Create large, graphic tree charts
including descendant charts and pedigree charts (up to 99 generations), fan charts, and timeline charts. Provides complete on-screen editing of color, font, font size, shadow, border, connecting lines, and captions. Move boxes or branches on-screen, by clicking-and-dragging. Automatically change chart orientation; including top-to-bottom, left-to-right, and waterfall models. Zoom out to give you the big picture of the entire chart.
See places on a map.
Reunion integrates with Google Maps to pinpoint your place entries and draw maps, for example: showing the birth, residences, and death places of a person.
You can enter dates as they might be spoken, like a death date as “40 years 3 months 2 days after birth.” Reunion shows the weekday for the birth, death, or marriage date, the age at marriage, the current age or life span of a person, and the length of marriage. Also, you can choose from 16 different formats for the display of dates.
Reunion tells you, at a glance, how people are related to you (or anyone in your family file) and automatically figures out relationships as you add new people. Create custom lists of relatives too. For example, a list of all your removed cousins or a list of all descendants. Find the relationship between any two people in your records and create a chart showing the direct-line between the two people; also identify the common ancestor.
Dozens of reports and lists.
Everything from simple lists to comprehensive books. Plenty of ways to see, review, share, and print your information.
Print attractive family group sheets, person sheets, questionnaires, and blank forms. These are great for gathering data from relatives. Reunion lets you print forms for any group of people in your file, for example a questionnaire for all your first cousins.
Birthday and Anniversary reminders.
Have Reunion remind you of upcoming special events in your family. Create easy-to-customize lists of events.
Full GEDCOM import/export lets you transfer data to Reunion without re-typing. You can exchange data with users of other genealogy software (Windows or Mac). If you’ve been collecting information in FileMaker or some other database program, Reunion also features a text file import, to help you bring the data into Reunion.
Reunion makes it easy to work with “subsets” of your family file. For example, create a tree chart for “direct lines only,” make a book with just Dad’s side of the family, or publish a web report with only Mom’s ancestors.
Cascading Pedigree Charts.
These are a series of graphic pedigree charts, 4- or 5-generations per page, that are cross referenced with continuation numbers.
instantly recalls the last 10,000 surnames you’ve entered, helping you avoid typing the same surname over and over. Similarly, an internal place database tracks all your place entries and makes it easy to make consistently correct place entries.
Document the sources of your information using “shared” source records. For example, if you wish to cite a source, you only need to record details about the source one time. Information about the source (the library, the book, the microfilm, the date, the quality of the data, even scans or pictures of original documents) can be entered into a single source record, and you can cite this source on any record, in any data entry field, as many times as you want. You have the option to include sources in reports.
Easy to get help.
Reunion includes an easy to use, easy to search, comprehensive digital User Guide. No matter where you are in Reunion, a Help button appears that will take you instantly to the right spot in the User Guide. We can help you by phone and e-mail. And, don’t forget our online community, ReunionTalk, comprising thousands of Reunion users.
