Thank you Jane for that information it was just what I needed to know as I
have used about 6 different family tree software programmes in the last few
weeks and hadn't been able to find the one that would do what I needed until
I found out about Family Historian. I downloaded the trial to see how it
works etc. and how many people it would hold. Now you have given me the info
I needed I will buy the full package and work at my own pace.
Thanks so much for your help.

There are two limitations which are quite different, Family Historian can
store tens of thousands of entries in a single project so you can record
and keep all your family in one file. I loaded a file with 250,000 people
in it the other day with out a problem.
When it comes to printing off the information there are some practical
constraints which come from the printer and the method you send the
information to them. The largest chart I have ever printed (which
contained one branch of my tree had around 250 people on it and was around
12' long and 5' high, we put it out on the patio of the place we had the
re-union and by the time I came home I had lots of other people pencilled
If I was to print an All relatives diagram for myself and my husband, FH
can draw it and it could be printed, but I am not sure how you would lay
it out. The numbers are as follows:
Number of Boxes = 2805
Number of Individuals = 2734
Diagram Size (excluding margins):
Width = 163' 1.1"
Height = 5' 10.29"
