I was looking for some family tree making softwares that will generate an html page of the family tree (a little fancy looking) and also list all individuals which obviously can be accessed by clicking. And the family tree based on probably a java applet or whatever so the central individual can be changed by the visitor of the html page.

I've been using Family Tree Maker (genealogy.com) not too impressed by it.

Any suggestions? What have you used out there & what are you impressed with?

:lol: I dont wanna spend my time making a silly family tree thats why looking for pre-made. :lol:

Do any of these except dtree, can be incorporated in an html page and that can be customized?

Family Tree Maker was a good one but it generates the tree and publishes it online. You cannot have the tree on your own website, it has to be on their&#39;s. Although I would look into tweaking it.

I want something like FTM but that publishes sort of a java applet on a page which can be customized.
