Genesis


GeneoTree origins are in France

The original concept was to developpe features which aren't exist in other softwares.
For example, print a tree with no truncate words.
Then, the second concept was to have the maximum informations with a minimum of clics.
For example, notes and sources are displayed on-line in the third vertical sector of the screen.
Or still, tree acces are available in one clic since all application sceens

In 2005, a meeting with another genealogist programmer gave me a lot of motivation to create this project.

Thanks
