GeneWeb is a genealogy software program with a Web interface. It can be used off-line or in a Web environment. It uses very efficient techniques of relationship and consanguinity computing.

GeneWeb is what is called a "daemon" (in the Unix world). It is a program that spends its time waiting for somebody to send it requests. The program is also able to record a log of the requests made to it.

GeneWeb does not use applets, Java, nor Javascript, just simple HTML. All the computing is done by the home (server) computer.

The software still functions even if a web server has not been installed on the machine.

GeneWeb is used as the engine for several public genealogy websites, including GeneaNet, a collection of inter-searchable genealogical databases currently containing references to more than 225 million persons.
