Features include:

  • Generates reports:
    • Table - this view shows entities in rows - the columns are properties of those entities (e.g. Name, Sex and Birth Date)
    • Tree - when looking at the information contained in a GEDCOM file through this view family-relationships are key. To build a visual tree GenJ starts with the root of the tree (an individual or family) and collects all ancestors and descendants of that root. It generates high quality family trees, including portraits
