Webtrees is a free, open source, website based, collaborative genealogy application. It works with standard GEDCOM files and is installed on a web server using PHP and MySQL (or Postgres, SQL Server, or SQLite).
Webtrees is a fork of PhpGedView, it was created in early 2010, when a majority of active PhpGedView developers stopped using SourceForge. Webtrees is the second fork of PhpGedView. In late 2005 the first one, called Genmod, was created.On 26 July 2010, a month before version 1.0.0 of webtrees was released, Dick Eastman, who publishes Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, introduced webtrees as "the wave of the future."
The day version 1.0.0 of webtrees was released, Tamura Jones reviewed and compared the differences of it to PhpGedView.External links Community Wiki webtrees project page on Launchpad.net
Webtrees version 2.0.0 was released December 7th 2019. It runs on PHP 7.1 - 7.4.
