|Welcome to this forum.
The first post will be a reminder of what is SmartGenealogy :
SmartGenealogy is a genealogy software that will let you record individual persons with dates and places of birth, marriage and death and other events in their lives, along with the sources and repositories where you found the information from.
You can also include pictures or indicate multimedia files.
It is easy to add events to an individual record : They then automatically display in the person's life.
The supported events are : Adoption, Baptism, Birth, Burial, Census, Confirmation, Cremation, Death, Divorce, Emigration, Event, Graduation, Immigration, Marriage, Naturalization, Occupation, Reference, Religion, Residence, Source, Title.
You can create, open and destroy genealogy databases, import a Gedcom file or a Excel file, export your databases
at the Gedcom format or as an Excel file, print, look for doubles, use a perpetual calendar or a "To Do" notepad.
You can also back-up your databases as compressed ZIP files.
You can also create automatically an Internet web-site with your databases.
According to the selected tab, you can perform the following actions :
Pedigree tab : Navigate inside the opened database
Persons, Events, Multimedia, Sources, Repositories tabs : Create, modify or delete elements of the opened database
Seek tab : Look after persons who meet a specified criteria
Family tab : Add a note to a family (A family is either a couple "Father-Mother" in case of a birth, or a couple "Husband-Wife" in case of a marriage)
SmartGenealogy can handle very large databases with a good response time.
The navigation inside the database is quite intuitive : Just click on a name in the person list, children list or spouse list, and you automatically jump to this person.
Also just by one click, the list of persons can be ordered-up according to many criteria (name, date, place, source...)
The seek function is also very powerful and intuitive.
SmartGenealogy runs under Windows 95-98-XP-NT
In English and French.
