The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding 5.1.2 (TNG)

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.
