Create a Family Tree Embroidery
This exercise is taken from the Family Tree Wizard chapter of the PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery Reference Guide for Windows®.
The Family Tree Wizard is only available in PREMIER+™ 2 ULTRA.
Use the Family Tree Wizard to create an embroidered family chart of up to three generations of ancestors or descendents for an individual.
Before you start, run Reset All Modules in PREMIER+™ 2 Configure to use the initial settings for the fonts, frames and connectors in the family tree embroidery. 1 In the Wizards tab, click Family Tree to start the Family Tree Wizard. 2 In the Family page, click Ancestors Chart . The First Individual dialog box opens. 3 In Given Name, enter "John", and in Family Name enter "Green". 4 Ensure that Gender is set to Male and click Next.

5 In the Parents dialog box, enter "Robert" as the Given Name for Father. 6 For Mother, enter "Jane" as the Given Name and "White" as the Family Name. Click Next. 7 In the Grandparents dialog box for Robert Green, enter "Simon" as the Given Name for Father, and
"Agnes" and "Grey" as the Given Name and Family Name for Mother. Click Next. 8 In the Grandparents dialog box for Jane White, enter "Thomas" as the Given Name for Father, and
"Susan" and "Black" as the Given Name and Family Name for Mother.

9 Click Close to finish entering names for the family tree.
When you click Close the family tree is saved. If you shut down PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery, and then reopen it and the Family Tree Wizard, the family tree you entered will be displayed. 10 Click to select Given Beside Family Name. The family names are now also displayed. At the bottom of the Family Tree Wizard window the number of stitches and the design dimensions change. Use this information to check whether the design will fit in the desired hoop. 11 Click Grandparents . The Grandparents dialog box for Robert Green is opened. 12 Click Next to view the other Grandparents dialog box. 13 In the Family Name field for Mother, change "Black" to "Brown". The family tree design behind the dialog box is updated with the name Susan Brown. You can correct mistakes and add information to the family tree after creation. 14 Click Close.
If desired, click Send to PREMIER+™ 2 Family Tree to create a design with both ancestors and descendents, and to add PhotoStitch designs for individuals in the family. The family tree design is rather wide. To use the design on a cushion or in a frame, a taller format would look better. 15 Click Given Name Above Family Name. The design is now even wider! These frames were better suited to the side by side format. 16 Click the Frame tab. 17 Click the drop-down arrow in the Frame or Flourish area to view the Frames gallery. 18 In the Light 1 category, select the rectangular horizontal frame 7 to change the design proportions. 19 Click the Lettering tab to change the font used. Note that the Adina font used in the wizard theme is brown rather than the standard pink, and is used at Size 12mm. 20 For a more contemporary look, click the dropdown arrow for fonts, and scroll up to the Modern Category and select Gaudy 12 - 30mm. This is the same size as the Adina font previously used.
