The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding (TNG) 5.1.2 is available for registered TNG 5.x users. TNG is an online genealogy colaboration application. It uses PHP and a database (MySQL, etc.) and allows families to collaborate on genealogy research – the data can be updated in realtime by authorized users, without having to upload anything and GEDCOM files for local use can be downloaded from this application- this is a true genealogy applications. It also provides an easy way for viewing genealogy information.
A big advantage TNG has over, say the output from an offline genealogy program, is that you do not have to upload and/or manage 100s or 1000s of individual files – you can make your changes online, or upload a GEDCOM file and us it to populate a family tree in TNG.
