I'm not really a fan of doing things by hand, especially since I can't really store it on my laptop. I'm wondering if anyone either... a. knows how to make a (complex) family tree for three generations, possibly four in something like OpenOffice b. knows of a free, simple to use piece of software that will allow me to make a family tree? By 'complex', I mean so that I can incorporate things such as divorce/second marriage/stepchildren. The only information I really want included would be name/DOB/sex/relationships. This is necessary as my story is basically a family drama. I did find one program (it was a trial though) called 'Family Echo' which was really really helpful, but I could only view the tree in a basic format, not with the family's links to other families - for example, my MC has been divorced and is now in a relationship with his ex-wife's half sister, and I could only view either his girlfriend's or his ex-wife's sides of the tree at one point, which was a bit annoying. Thanks in advance for any advice or links, I'm really desperate for this!
