Developer’s Description:

Family Historian is, we believe, unique in being 100% GEDCOM compatible, and 100% GEDCOM complete. ‘100% GEDCOM compatible’ means that Family Historian can save all of its data to the GEDCOM format. ‘100% GEDCOM complete’ means that Family Historian can load all records and fields from a GEDCOM file — including other applications’ extensions to GEDCOM.
