PhpGedView is a web-based genealogy program which allows users to view and edit their genealogy on a website.

PhpGedView has full editing capabilities, full privacy functions, can import data from GEDCOM files, and supports multimedia like photos and document images.

PhpGedView also simplifies the process of collaborating with others working on your family tree. Its use of the de facto GEDCOM standard allows for importing data from almost any current genealogy program.

PhpGedView uses a theme based architecture allowing users to have greater flexibility over the appearance of the site.

The software uses a simple table layout because it operates primarily on GEDCOM data, and only needs to access the database for search and retrieval.

The GEDCOM 5.5 standard supports multimedia files of all types. Currently PhpGedView supports multimedia objects only as external files. Multimedia embedded in the GEDCOM file itself are ignored.

PhpGedView has built-in support for multiple languages.

 PhpGedView 4.2.4

Free to download
