Clooz Features

Enter Document Information

Over 230 different templates are provided to match the types of information contained in the type of document you find.


Unique Analysis Tools

Clooz has presentation features specially designed to support your data analysis, such as a hierarchical layout called the Composite View.


Export to your Family Tree

Clooz provides a very powerful capability for you export the people, events, sources and citations to your favorite family tree program where you can view the tree and produce all the typical charts.



Clooz has several different types of report formats where you control the content.  These can be printed or exported as Adobe pdf, MS Excel, MS Word, rich text (rtf), or XML files, or bypass the report generation and export records directly to an Excel file.


Training Materials

A combination of written and video content has been produced to help researchers rapidly learn how to use the full potential of Clooz. A detailed user's guide (pdf) comes free with Clooz, which matches the help file content within the program.  New training videos will continue to be made.


Support and Updates

Ancestral Systems has developed a strong reputation for providing excellent user support (Clooz has won numerous GenSoftReviews Users Choice Awards!).
