Bonjour, GeneaNet
GeneaNet introduces new features.

A quiet little genealogy Web site from France has suddenly entered the big time of Internet genealogy with its new free services, searches and software. The ultimate goal of GeneaNet <>, formed in 1996, is "to build a database that indexes all the world's genealogical resources, whether Net-based or not and whether free or fee-paying."

Since it went "commercial" last year — accepting advertising to make the site free — GeneaNet has significantly beefed up its value to genealogists. For example, it recently joined the likes of Legacy and Personal Ancestral File by giving away a free, full-featured genealogy software program. With its GeneWeb, you can record data, add photos, create family trees, calculate relationships, manage dates, convert calendar dates and display statistical data. If you opt to use the online version, you can share your family tree with others and allow them to add their own data. (Or keep it to yourself if you prefer.) You can also download GeneWeb for offline use. For details on this program, see <>.
