This subscription is for one-month of access to the Chamorro Roots Genealogy Project database. Some of the Chamorro Roots Genealogy Project's database program features include, but are not limited to:
Advanced pedigree charts . Capable of displaying an indefinite number of generations in several different formats for every person in the database. Attached photos and drop-down data boxes with additional information make it the centerpiece of the whole application. With a single click, you jump to the individual page or a new pedigree for anyone on the chart. The AJAX technology built in allows smooth browsing from one generation to the next. Climb up and down the entire tree without ever refreshing the page!
Relationship chart. Start with any individual, then pick any other person in your tree and TNG will display a graphical chart of their relationship. If the individuals are not related within a designated number of generations, TNG will tell you that as well.
Timeline . Display a bar chart comparing the lifespans of an unlimited number of individuals from your database. Start from any individual and add any person you browse to, or others. Plus, the chart is saved until you close your browser window. Add your own events to the timeline as well!
Descendancy chart. In a glance see an indefinite number of descendant generations for every person with links to each person's individual page. In the text-only chart, collapse or expand each generation. For each descendant listed on the text-only chart, you can also click to view a graphical tree tracing the line. Plus, switch easily between
Standard and Register formats. Register chart As mentioned in the previous paragraph, the Standard descendancy chart can instantly be toggled to display in text-only or Register format, which for some means a more readable alternative. More data in many cases as well.
Graphical descendancy tracing.
An icon next to each descendant on the Standard descendancy chart links quickly to a boxes-and-connecting-lines display of parents, children and siblings, from the primary individual down to the person selected. Inset photos (like on the pedigree chart) and vital years make this a valuable visual tool.
Printer-friendly pages A link on each page now shows you the same page in a new window, without any headers, sidebars or page backgrounds, making it easier to create printouts of what you see without having it cluttered or pushed off the page.
PDF Reports available.
Pedigree, descendancy and individual pages are exportable in PDF format.
Photos . Some individual and family records are linked to photos. In particular, are those that we have been able to capture from obituaries, funeral announcements or other media sources.
Reports . Several customized reports have been made by clicking on the Reports link: 1727 Census, 1758 Census, 1897 Census, 1920 Census and one of the most viewed is the Family Clan Name Report, which lists individuals alphabetically by surname and shows their family clan name associations.
Simple and advanced searching. You can search just on first name/last name, or try the Advanced Search to limit or expand the number of matches found. Use the Advanced Search to query by just about any event in your database. Choose whether the data "starts with", "ends with", "equals" or "contains" your search terms, or match by Soundex or metaphones. Use date ranges, plus show names of spouses if desired! Even decide whether to join all criteria with "AND" or "OR".
Surnames lookup. Track down individuals by surname, but not from an endless unreadable paragraph. Instead, view names in neat columns, and limit your search only to those beginning with a certain letter or symbol. Also see a list of the top 25 surnames in your file, or choose to see all surnames on a single page.Dates (Anniversaries, Birth dates, Deaths) One available link can pull up a table listing anniversaries, births, deaths, marriages for a particular date.
In order for this project to continue to grow, I have implemented a nominal $5/month subcription fee to access the Chamorro Roots Genealogy Project database. This fee can be paid through the Tendan Hale' Chamoru link. For Registered Users, there will be a one-time 7-day trial subscription granted automatically with new registrations. This trial offer is also to allow newly registered users the opportunity to experience the difference between the 'Demo Database' and the live database. Once the 7-day trial period has expired you will only have access to the Demo Database that has very limited features.
I highly recommend taking advantage of and subscribing to the 'Chamorro Roots Library' subcription option, since its for one-year access and includes viewing the digital files available on this site for $60/year. However, this fee is not prorated like the monthly subscription that is also only limited to accessing the database and not the digital archives. I believe these subscription fees are nominal and quite reasonable compared to the other commercially available genealogy sites.
I appreciate your understanding and support to this upcoming change. If you have any question please feel free to contact me.
