Create a Family Tree

To create a family tree, you can use software programs such as Family Tree Maker. If you use a site such as Ancestry.com, you can open up your information to help others -- and for them to help you. Software programs include templates, photo retouching tools, and an option to create books and posters. Charles Stone wants to keep his family business private. "I told my kids I'm not putting it online," he says. "When I die they can do what they want."

$60: Family Tree Maker 2012 for PC (tally assumes using Ancestry.com)
$80: Bound book. The cost for one 11" x 8-1/2" leather hardcover book, 40 pages, printed in color.
$40: Create a color family tree poster - ancestry.com

Running Tally: $3,125
