The user interface is a simple four-step wizard-style process which reads a GEDCOM file and generates a report to a PDF file, a printer, or a text file (proof-reading draft).
Report options offer the inclusion of indirect relations through marriage, image media, and notes. In addition to the fully cross-referenced narrative sections, The Complete Genealogy Reporter can produce four-generation family tree diagrams as part of the report.
Two-sided printed book options are available to alternate the left and right margin indentations and page headings.
The output is formatted as free-flowing text which is easily comprehended by readers with no computer or genealogical knowledge. The narrative includes relationship descriptions (e.g., first cousin, once removed, by marriage), and comprehensive date processing and age calculations.
