TreeDraw is a genealogy program for computers running Microsoft Windows. The program is a chart editor which aids family historians in creating and printing family trees. Developed by SpanSoft, Scotland, the software is distributed as shareware with a free trial period.
TreeDraw is essentially a vector graphics editor which creates various styles of family tree charts using data imported from external sources such as GEDCOM files or Kith and Kin Pro databases. The program allows user manipulation of the imported charts using features common to most drawing programs such as element repositioning and scaling.
The program stores data in .TDR (TreeDraw chart) files, TreeDraw's native format. A freeware .TDR file viewer is available. TreeDraw will import data from GEDCOM files or from Kith and Kin Pro databases. The program also exports Adobe PDF files.
The program was first developed by Nick Hunter as a Windows 3.1 program and released as shareware in 1994. In 2001 the first TreeDraw Legacy Edition was released, a special edition of the program which imports data directly from Legacy Family Tree data files.
