Genealogy widget?

Are there any good, preferably free, widgets that I can use to build a family tree and put it on my blog? Ideally I would like a widget that has some sort of database behind it, and I would link to a database record for a specific ancestor when I write about them . It would also be cool to show an attractive family tree as a navigational tool to go to old blog posts about specific ancestors. You could click links in the genealogy widget to posts about all of the stories that are tagged "great grandpa Joe," for example.

Recommendations for Genealogy Software

FamilyTreeFilter: I want to start tracking my family tree. I would like to go back as far as I can, at least to the first ancestors to come to the US. I've found that there are a lot of computer programs for this. Does anyone have any recommendations on software for this? Also, any helpful websites/books/etc?

Family Tree Program

Is there a free/cheap family-tree program (for the PC) that outputs in ascii text (with dashes, pipe-symbols, etc. as the connectors between people) or HTML format?
