I am a retired online school teacher. During July 2007 - January 2010, and September 2011 until the present I have provided part-time support for https://familysearch.org This is very rewarding.

Free 9-Generation Fan-chart Pedigree from Treeseek.com

Well, at least it will generate a color chart for you for free if you have an account with either Geni.com or new.familysearch.org, since these are the places where it can get the data needed.

Of the 14 people I helped during my shift today, 3 wanted help with this fan chart.
I found two things interesting about this:
1. the number of people wanting it
2. it is not a FamilySearch product, but they came to us for help!

Point #2 is understandable because one of our websites can be accessed from the chart's website:
https://treeseek.com/
Still, even if it is not our product, I was glad to help. It is a beautiful chart, but needs to be printed on multiple sheets of paper unless you plan to use a microscope to read it.

Still if you have an account with either new.familysearch.org or geni.com I encourage you to take a look at it.
