Projects / GeneWeb


GeneWeb is a system for people who want to publish their genealogy data on the Web. It can also be used locally (not connected on the net) as a normal genealogy program. It uses very efficient techniques of relationship and consanguinity computing, speaks several languages, and can run in conjunction with an existing Web server (CGI) or standalone using its own internal server.

            Great Program
            I'm always amazed with the performance of Geneweb. I export a 40MB GEDCOM from my Mom's Family Tree Maker. Gramps used to just choke on it. Now Gramps loads it but runs VERY slowly. Geneweb, on the other hand, acts like it's nothing, plus it's accessible over the internet. I've almost gotten my Mom talked into switching to it from FTM. Geneweb's performance even blows FTM out of the water, especially considering she could still use Geneweb from some ancient machine over her browser since Geneweb is running on my server.

            You're right. I've submitted an update - but that's something you could have done yourself. You don't need to be an author to provide FM updates.

            date format
            To reconcile everybody, from the version 2.07, the dates in the update forms are displayed yy-mm-dd.

            date format
            I believe the mm/dd/yy is a US format. Correct me if I'm wrong.
