GeneWeb is a genealogy software program with a Web interface
originally developed by Daniel de Rauglaudre, but currently
maintained by It can be used off-line
or in a Web environment. It uses very efficient techniques
of relationship and consanguinity computing, developed in
collaboration with Didier Remy, research Director at INRIA.
Feel free to enable option GTK2 to try the new GUI. It's
only disabled by default to avoid accidental GTK2 dependencies.

Sample rc-script /usr/local/etc/rc.d/gwd has been provided to help run gwd
as a daemon process. Adjust it to suit your needs, and add gwd_enable="YES"
to your /etc/rc.conf to enable gwd to run automatically upon reboot.
Unfortunately, the documentation that was present with earlier GeneWeb
versions has been dropped since 6.02. Please refer to the GeneWeb wiki
and/or to the GeneWeb mailing list if you need
Main Makefile in GeneWeb 6.07 does not build the experimental GUI, however
it remains in the codebase. GTK2 option is being retained in this port in
case the GUI becomes part of the main Makefile again in a later version.
If you notice odd failures, e.g., when editing a family, make sure you are
using an up-to-date template. Additional attributes, e.g., occupation got
added around v6.06, and if your template does not include this, you will
likely experience problems as the code throws an exception when trying to
edit a family.
