    I've used to find and sometimes to clean up the tree before I started building my own. I'd love to get some suggestions! - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Sites to better visualise family tree
    The Gramps software can do this for you. If you add coordinates to the locations you've entered, it can plot events at that location on the map (for example all births, or all events for certain people). And it lets you draw a radius around the locations too which seems like what you're looking for. It'll be a bit of work to get set up with an imported tree, though. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

  • The Silly Question Saturday Thread (April 10, 2021)
    Gramps is what I use. It takes a bit of getting used to but it's very customizable so you can take your own notes or record your own kind of events, not just the types of information that comes by default. From the data it can also generate different kinds of family trees or reports. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
