Thank you Colleen, I visited that web site; looks promising. I signed up for the newsletter and I can go from there. If it is too expensive, I have lost nothing, just continuing what I have been doing.

Just did a quick Google search and came up with this. Haven't had time to download the trial and fear it may be fairly expensive software, but it is designed for plant breeding

There are several animal pedigree programs on the market, mostly for PC. Two that have excellent reputations are BreedMate and Pedigrees2020. I use BreedMate as well as an Access database I designed myself, for keeping track of cat pedigrees. I have also put cat pedigrees into Family Tree Maker, but the software made for animal peds is much more efficient.
If you do a Google search for pedigree software you'll probably find both of the above plus many others. Both BreedMate and Pedigrees2020 have web sites and demos you can download and play around with.

That program sounds interesting. What is its name?

A pedigree program for animals might work better. You wouldn't necessarily have to enter individual siblings from one cross (rather you could treat them as "litters" or test matings) and it wouldn't have any trouble with the inbreeding.
The only problem might be in cases where an iris is fertile both ways. An animal program wouldn't want the same "animal" to be a "sire" and a "dam". The software I use does allow it but it gives me a message asking if that's really what I want.<G>

Subject: [iris-photos] pedigree tree for iris

There has been some discussion of how to get a pedigree for irises on paper. I decided to try it on a genealogy program for making (people) family trees. It's not easy. The program isn't happy with all the inbreeding <grin>. But it's possible. Here is a chart I made using Earl of Essex. I'm not sure I have all the information correct and I know there are numbers for all the sdlgs that I have listed simply as seedlings. I used the date of birth to enter the year of introduction and the place of birth for the hybridizer's name. For flowers that rebloom, I added re after the name of the hybridizer. I haven't yet added family members to the same "parents" so I don't know how that would work. You might have to treat them all as individuals or you might end up with one being his own grandpa. The family tree maker might have a problem with creating the tree in that case.
