Default Whats the difference between Microsoft Viso and Office?

I have the option to download Microsoft Viso 2016, or Microsoft Office 2016. I just want powerpoint for a hierarchy family tree.

Microsoft Visio is a specific tool used for drawing flowcharts and other diagrams. Microsoft Office is a suite of applications that Microsoft produces.

Go for Office!

Visio is not only specific, but much more involved (things are not wizard based). Stick with the PowerPoint idea and get Office as suggested above. Plenty of "how-to's" on YouTube as well.

This. I have used Visio in college and it is a whole 'nuther beast. Office would do you great.

If I was creating a family tree I'd actually use the website: Draw.io

Excellent and easy (relatively) to use tool! Office would also work fine though.
