My Family View is a view in GenDetective, which combines traditional genealogy reports with the graphical representation of your family created by My Personal Research Goals. Remember, the goal of GenDetective is to shuffle your data and present it in different formats to trigger thoughts on ways to break through your brick walls.
My Family View can be accessed in multiple ways:
- The View Menu
- The Current View toolbar button
- The Family button on the toolbar
- By clicking on the details of a person in any other view in GenDetective (My Research Progress, My Maps, My Tree)
My Family View provides a way for you to select the report format that you most prefer to work with. GenDetective has taken “standard” genealogy reports and customized them to fit the way that GenDetective views each person. To change the report that is generated whenever you click on a person, click on the Report: link (in picture labeled Report: Research Progress).
This list appears when you click on the Report: link. My Family View will generate any one of these seven reports for you to use. A sample of each of these reports is displayed below. Be sure that you view one of your people in each of the different reports to help you determine which reports you prefer to work with. A detailed post discussing each of these sample reports will be coming soon.
This post will be updated with the link to each report post when it is available.

My Family View also incorporates an additional filtering option which we will discuss in another post. Experiment with these key individual reports to pick your preferred report or three.
