Is GenealogyJ out-of-life? What program to use?

Postby ghueller » Sun Mar 05, 2017 18:48:34

10 years ago, I have put together a personal dataset in Genealogy/J
Now, I see that there is not much life in the forum...
I want to use existing data and print a nice family tree on an A0 printer (challenge is with multiple children from different fathers)

Should I still use GenJ? How? (Tree view only allows one child family... how to print a full tree?)
Good suggestions for other programs in which I can import my gedcom file?

Cheers from Vienna

Hi Gernot

It certainly seems to be dormant if not dead. As mentioned in your other thread you could look at Ancestris which is basically GenJ with some additions and changes. A couple of alternative open-source options are 'Gramps' or 'Geneweb' or one of the server-based programs 'Webtrees' or 'Humogen' (both can be run on your own computer and used as desktop apps rather than on the internet). Gramps with plug-ins offers the sort of charts you were asking about in your other thread. If you're using Windows, there are other free/non-open-source programs such as Ahnenblatt, ScionPC etc etc.

Good luck!
