Review: PhpGedView (Eastman’s)

Dick Eastman, from Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter, has published a review of PhpGedView.

PhpGedView is a genealogy program that allows you to view and edit genealogy data that is stored on your personal web site. While the program runs on a web server that might be many miles from where you are sitting, PhpGedView allows you to edit the data and run reports almost as if you were sitting in front of the hosting computer. You open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.), connect to the web server, and edit your genealogy data as you wish. You can import data from GEDCOM files, manually add or edit data, or even add multimedia files, such as photos and document images. You can also run reports.

One of the most comprehensive PhpGedView reviews around, including online hosting companies that support PhpGedView, as well as mentioning the privacy issues that will inevitably come up when publishing genealogy data online.
