10-generation UNFOLDED genealogy pedigree charts available now!

Ten-generation UNFOLDED pedigree charts are now available! The 10-generation pedigree charts are the biggest EasyGenie genealogy charts we sell, not only in terms of the number of generations covered (10 generations/1,024 numbered spaces), but also the sheer size of the paper - each sheet is nearly 2 feet wide and 3 feet tall!  It's worth noting that our ten-generation pedigree charts have a unique feature you won't find anywhere else: cells for up to 16 children of the primary couple.

For instance, their fathers urged both young men to get into the management track at the...

Recognizing genealogy scams and pirates

Last week's EasyGenie newsletter about pirates (see "Skeletons found in sunken pirate ship off Cape Cod") coincided with a report of a modern-day pirate ... right on the EasyGenie Facebook page! A user spotted an offer for our genealogy charts that seemed too good to be true, and possibly a genealogy scam: We've also received reports of other online retailers based overseas selling genealogy charts and not delivering them, not issuing refunds, and even selling cloth genealogy charts which are impossible to write on:  Just to be clear, EasyGenie is a family-owned U.S. business which does ALL printing in the United States...

Coming soon: genealogy charts showing multiple spouses

This winter, Nicole and I have been hard at work on various fronts. We moved office a few weeks ago, worked with our local printing partner on a quality checklist, and created a new genealogy product roadmap for 2021.

Having charts that show second husbands and wives has been one of the top requests from customers for years.
