Eric Silverman asks for a 3-D program for genealogical representation. Maybe
there is such a thing and maybe not. But luckily, you don't have to wait.
John Atkins, one of the most sophisticated model builders in our business used
to do 3D all the time. His technology of choice was tinker toys, and he did
some amazing things with them, one of which I described on the Net last year
sometime. When the model got too big, he used toothpicks and marshmellows,
which you can color code with a marker. It may be low-tek, but it works.
