Here are some software programs useful for genealogy. In the coming weeks I will be adding some recommended programs and a few software reviews.


GED-GEN

First and foremost is GED-GEN, a program I created to generate genealogy websites. Easily convert your family tree into web pages like my Family Group Sheets.
