Legacy Charting Companion 3.0 now available - new Embroidery Charts

Cc3Legacy Charting Companion 3.0’s new Embroidery Charts are as practical as they are fun. Now you can wear your family tree and attract the attention of possible relatives you’ve never met. (Legacy Charting Companion is a Legacy add-on product developed by Progeny Genealogy, not to be confused with Legacy Charting which is included with Legacy Family Tree.)

You can embroider two types of charts: Ancestor Fan, and Descendant Fan Charts. Format them in quarter-, half- or full-circle - your choice! The program can render up to 5 generations from your Legacy family file on any one Embroidery Chart and still preserve the legibility of lettering.

This is one more way that Legacy Charting Companion’s powerful family tree charting capabilities can bring your family history to life. You won’t find this feature in any other genealogy program.

How does it work? Dynamic Stitching File Format - DST

Cc4Legacy Charting Companion’s new Embroidery Chart feature generates a file format called "DST." This Dynamic Stitching file enables any commercial embroidery shop to satin stitch the chart you created on a T-shirt, vest - whatever you choose.

But you don’t need to worry about all that. Charting Companion makes it easy to create the file: you just send it off for processing. Check the Embroidery Shop Locator below to find a supplier near you.

If you happen to have a computer-compatible home sewing machine, lucky you. DST works with most machines, so you can do it yourself - or for others.

How can I contact the maker of the Legacy Charting Companion? I want to ask about the embroidery compatibilities before I make the purchase.

First, let me ooh and aww about Legacy Family Tree and Legacy Charting!
I have been using your programs for a number of years now and each new upgrade just keeps making it better!

Today I read about the new add-on for Legacy Charting - Embroidery Charts! This is totally awesome since I am a needleworker, however, my forte is cross-stitching. For a few years now, I have been looking for a cross-stitch pattern to do my family tree. There is a distinct difference between these two methods of needleworking but you are on the right track! Now, onto the cross-stitch patterns?

Keep up the great work with these wonderful programs, and thank you.

Sincerely, Doris from Brampton, ON
