GENViewer for Legacy Version Is Versatile and Fast
March 15, 2006
GENViewer for Legacy is a remarkable add-on program that works directly with Legacy family files or with GEDCOM files created by other genealogy applications. With GENViewer's powerful File Search capabilities, you can simultaneously search multiple files for individuals or find that critical piece of information you need. Gone is the need to examine files one a time.
GENViewer's intuitive, easy-to-use interfaces provide nine different views of your genealogy information: General, Individual, Family, Pedigree, Descendants, List, Highlighted, Islands, and Sources. Most views of your data can be copied to the clipboard with just a click of the mouse. You can then paste the family information right into an e-mail message, word processing document or another application. Reports can also be created in HTML and PDF formats.
GENViewer is an incredible tool for analyzing your family information. Use GENViewer's highlighting tool to make information stand out in each of the views of your data. There are about 100 easy-to-use highlighting options. It's amazing what you can see using this highlighting tool.
You can also use GENViewer's Internet search to find information about your family on the Web. When you find a Web page with information just right click on it and select Print from the popup menu.
GENViewer can create a self-viewing executable from a GEDCOM file that will display your genealogical information when run. This file can be e-mailed as an attachment or placed on a Web site for downloading. Furthermore the special file can be created on a floppy disk and run on any Windows computer. This is a truly unique and efficient way to share your genealogy with people who don't own a genealogy program but who have a computer.
Use GENViewer to quickly examine and clean up all of those GEDCOM files that are cluttering your computer. Its speed and versatility makes it ideal for previewing GEDCOM files before taking the time and effort of importing them into Legacy.
Because GENViewer uses existing Legacy and GEDCOM files, it doesn't create extra files that fill up the hard drive. This is a great space-saving feature. Furthermore, GENViewer is a read-only application: it doesn't change or modify any files so users don't have to worry about changing any information.
Here's what users are saying:
"I downloaded a GEDCOM from Ancestry.com. I didn't realize how big it was. This GEDCOM had almost 26,000 people in it. When I downloaded GENViewer, this GEDCOM was one of the first things I tried it out on. Here are the results:
File Size: 18,745,745
Import Time: 2.240 seconds
# people: 25,931
# families: 11,530
# notes: 390
# sources: 631.
2.24 seconds is ridiculously fast for this many records! And with GENViewer, I can see who is in there, how complete the information is, how connected they are and a zillion other things. It makes importing GEDCOMs into my database so much easier. Thanks for a wonderful product."

"GENViewer allows you to see a glance exactly what is included in both your own database and in GEDCOMs received from others and to quickly gather lists of your choice of highlighted information from those databases. Its speed and sorting features are unsurpassed. It is an extremely valuable search tool which helps you to better understand and piece together your family tree information. I highly recommend it!" -- Kathi Sittner: Legacy user
