Genealogy Software and Online Trees

One of the best tools to organize your research is the online tree or genealogy software. The online trees are easy to edit and can be enhanced with photographs, sources and more. You decide to share the trees with selected friends and family, the world or to keep it totally private. Another option is to purchase a genealogy software program.

Computerized records allow you to print reports and charts to share with other and to keep up to date files. You can also export and import the data because genealogy programs use a unique file format: the GEDCOM file.
