What is the .CFT File Extension?

.CFT File Extension Description:

The Cumberland Family Tree is the second generation genealogy software that allows you to create your own Family History Book. The body of the book consists of specialized "Story" reports coming from your own dry data such as dates and places, structuring them into human readable form.

The Cumberland Family Tree allows you to add up to 250 events in a person's life, attaching notes to major events such as births, church ordinances, schooling, graduations, occupations, awards, marriages, travels, and many other events in the life of an individual. You can easily create a complete biography of each person in the Cumberland Family Tree database, which is actually contained in a single file with the file extension CFT.

Files with the .cft file extension can be easily documented with source notes, which can be end-noted when printing out the story reports. These files can also be saved in the Indexed Book, which keeps track of all the individuals as you create your book. At the end of the show, an index of every individual can be footnoted throughout the book.

Files with the .cft file extension can also contain photographs and scanned documents, which can be generated in a wide variety of Photo reports such as pedigree charts with photos, descendant charts with photos, family group charts as well as a photo album.

The detailed data of files with the .cft file extension starts with the Family Group. The focal individual is labeled KeyInd while other family members such as the spouse, parents, and children follow. Each person's title displays the number of marriages with the marriage number, each child with an icon indicating the sex, name, record number, birth, death, and age at the time of death.

The next data displays the Ancestors with a list view of the person's family; each person's date of birth and death is displayed when the name is selected. The third data provides the Descendants presenting the family in an indented descendant style list. Each family group may be expanded or compressed. The last data displays the Story, which describes the various events included in the file with the .cft file extension.

All images, video, and audio files are linked to the files with the .cft file extension and not embedded. They can be played with the standard Windows audio and video players. Only the image file formats BMP, GIF, JPG and WMF can be linked to the files with the .cft file extension. The editing of these image files can be done using a separate program.

When opening a file with the .cft file extension, the selection list screen provides a number of manipulation options. Aside from choosing a database meant for usage, these files can be backed up, removed, restored, merged or split.
