Adam: The GEDCOM Family Tree Builder - Now with Maps
Adam: The GEDCOM Family Tree Builder
is a free web service that you can use to build your family tree. Your family tree, once built, will be compressed and presented as a downloadable zip file, which can extracted and then uploaded to your favorite hosting service or viewed directly from your hard drive allowing you to share your family tree directly with friends and relatives without needing to publish any of your private information online.
However, if you'd rather, I am pleased to now offer free hosting of your family tree using T.W.I.G.s
Adam has many unique features not found in other family tree builders. These features were designed to present your data in a easily readable format and to provide insight into the quality of your data. The features and the configuration options are described more fully in the User Manual
. Adam also makes special use of some of the existing GEDCOM tags as well as a number GEDCOM compliant extensions. These extended capabilities give you the ability to add important genealogy related data to your database, data that the GEDCOM standard does not provide out-of-the-box. When present, these data fields will greatly enhance the presentation of your family tree. More information on the extensions is available in the FAQ
If you would like to see an example of Adam in action, you can review my tree at THE FORSYTHE SAGA
where I have been using Adam to publish my tree online for over a decade. If you publish your tree online using Adam, consider sharing a link so that it can be added to a list of user sites.
