lifelines: A family tree, some assembly required

This little adventure in console applications is barely half finished, and I’ve already run through a huge array of software I otherwise would have never seen.

Part of that is because my own interests just never swing that wide. lifelines is a good example of that.


I don’t have any interest in family history; our branch is more or less the mutts and I’m content with that.

It’s cool to see lifelines work though, even in the very superficial fashion you see above. I know for certain that is barely a sliver of what lifelines does.

If genealogy is your gig, you probably already know about lifelines, and for what little I know of the art of tracing family histories, it’s biggest draw might just be that it’s completely free.

Of course, something like this might need your input to be useful. Some assembly required. 😉
