Tornio family tree

I worked on a little genealogy project last summer, building a family tree for the Tornio family based on genealogy data gathered by Rakel Kuronen. Main goal of the project was to transfer Rakel’s work of many years to digital format. I also added some more recent information and limited data from my mother’s side. While there are many good solutions available for storing family trees, I decided to develop my own in order to learn some Javascript and Ajax on the side. The basic user interface is pretty basic though (mainly just HTML+CSS), most of the advanced stuff is used on the editing side of things. For displaying database statistics I made heavy use of Google Chart API.
