PhpGedView 4.0 beta 7

Another beta for PhpGedView, the seventh this time (and perhaps the final?). PhpGedView is an online genealogy program that utilizes PHP, MySQL, etc., in order to allow collaboration between multiple researchers/genealogists over the internet. You can edit all of the information available, as well as add to it, you can create privacy restrictions (logins required, information of living individuals restricted, etc.). You can download and test it here.

Updates/Developer’s Note:

There are many significant changes and improvements in version 4.0. The most notible change is that version 4.0 no longer includes support for the built-in index mode. This means that version 4.0 requires that you use one of the supported SQL databases. We will continue to maintain the 3.3.x releases for continued support of index mode until PHP 5.x with built-in SQLite is more broadly available.

Version 4.0 also includes enhanced web services developed in partnership with students from Neumont University.

GeneoTree v 2.0

We recently came across an open-source online genealogy application, GeneoTree (less than a week ago), and now a major update has been released. GeneoTree is now at version 2.0. It’s main homepage is located at, it requires PHP and MySQL, and is based on using GEDCOM data files. You can view screenshots here (check out the neat PDF Report screenshot).

Introducing GeneoTree (v1.12)

GeneoTree v1.12 is another online genealogy application, and like Genmod, it’s an application we’ve not mentioned before. It’s free/open-source, and is web-based as well. It’s main homepage is located at, and it uses PHP and MySQL, and is based off of GEDCOM files.
