Detailed family tree

Some family trees are created very detailed and include not only the people's names and dates of birth/death, but also additional information, such as marriage dates, divorce dates, dates of immigrating to another country, contact details, etc. Each detailed family tree can vary greatly, based on the information which its creator wants it to reflect. Since detailed family trees can become very messy, the additional information of each member can be shown in a tool tip when the viewer hovers over the icon/picture of each person.
