The main window:
This is the main hub of "Familienbande".
All data for a given person are entered and displayed here. From here, you can navigate to spouses, parents and children with a click on the mouse. You can also find any references and documents for the shown people with a mouseclick.

You can also see the "butler" and the functions-window.
All found data and sources can be entered here. You can also comment these data, eg, note where they were found (referencing) and document their authenticity. There are seperate data sets for birth, baptism, wedding (in church),  separation, divorce, death, funeral, profession and person. The descendance can also be managed and selected easily in the relevant section.
Document management:
To better manage your documents, you can select whether to assign document to a person or generally. All documents are shown in a preview window. If you want to see or work with a larger version of the file, you can open it in an external application by double clicking it. You can also enter a comments for each document.
Address management:
Haven't we all received data somehow, and later dannot remember how or from whom we have the information? The address management can help. All information is organized in a table, and a mouseclick takes you to the relevant homepage, or opens a new e-mail window, correctly addressed.
Ancestor window:
This window provied a quick overview of the family tree, with either 5 or 7 generations. Direct ancestors can be shown up to 31 generations deep. You can quickly navigate to any shown person with a click on the mouse. Display options let you quickly see dates of birth and death, or show images, if you scroll over with the mouse.
Text or HTML export:
One of the most comprehensive functions is text of html export. You can create your own export templates, which enables you to design individual output files. This is a sample of the interface you will be using here. In this window, you load the templates and print from them. 
Printing labels:
With its comprehensive options and settings, printing labels is extremely flexible. You can choose from a multitude of presets, or arrange your labels at will (eg, the labels top right).  The design is equally flexible. You can change the font and its parameters, and also select individual characters for birth and death. Not shown here is the magnifying tool (activated by the alt-key), which lets you preview the label in detail.
Probably the nicest of all statistical functions is the timeline. At a glance, you can identify contemporaries. You can select a time frame and, to a certain extent, which persons should be included. The life span of women is shown as a red bar, those of men as a blue bar. If the year of birth or death are not known, the life span will be estimated as 80 years, and shown as a triangle, with its wider end marking the known date.
The general statistics window presents an overview of your collected data. You find the total numbers of men and women, separated by their family line, and the complete data sets. An overview by generation (including pedigree collapse) is also possible.
Other windows provide an insight of distibution of names, causes of death, professions and many other criteria.
Options of HTML-export:
This shows a result of HTML-export. The necessary template was created by Helge Rohde (many thanks!) and is not quite finished. The interim result, however, demonstrates the possibilities. All used data are genuine, but the images shown are not those of the metined persons. All persons mentioned are deceased.

Here is the result as a navigable web page.
