Goal

2006: Genealogica Grafica will be recognized as the norm for the publication of graphical genealogical data on the internet.
2010: in the meantime, the program is known as well for its unprecedented ability to signal inconsistencies in links and dates of a gedcom.

Introduction

Genealogica Grafica is the successor of KStableau. The program offers broad charting capabilities, such as:
  • ancestor chart (pedigree) plus outline
  • descendants chart plus outline
  • ancestor tree
  • descendant tree
  • timeline descendants chart
  • inbreeding charts
  • relationship charts
  • circle diagrams
  • geographic map of birthplaces
In addition, you can rely on:
  • a clear User Interface
  • capabilities for personalized report phrasing
  • superior Gedcom consistency checks
  • editing of tableau layout
  • high-quality prints
  • automatic detection of new versions
  • UI and output in English, French, German, Dutch, Swedish or Norwegian

The program is free. For some of the more advanced functions you need a key, which is given to anybody contributing to the further development (through donation or effort).

Acknowledgements

Genealogica Grafica would never have reached its current state without the help of many people. In particular I would like to acknowledge the contributions of Annemarth Sterringa for her genealogica insights and the supporters listed to the right for their language contributions.
