Projects / GWintree


GWintree is a GEDCOM-based genealogy program. It provides facilities to record, view, edit, and merge genealogy data, and to produce genealogy charts, family trees, and reports in a range of formats, including HTML. Charts can show all relatives, ancestors only, or descendants only. HTML charts allow you to click on a person in your HTML report to see where they are on the chart. Automatic matching and merging of genealogy data between files is supported.

            GWintree 0.9.5-5
            A nice family tree program and the only one for Linux I've found that does top-down (ancestor at the top of the page, as opposed to on the left) tree charts. This is how my family's tree was originally done by a professional genealogist, so its good to be able to keep with that format as the additions come in. Its also nice to be able to adjust the font of the chart to fit it on a smaller number of pages. No HTML charts, but I use ged2html for that. Recently updated to works well at 800x600. Provided as a Fedora RPM but installs out-the-box on Mandriva 2006.
