Editors' Review

+
Getting started assembling a family tree can be difficult, but Genealogy Finder offers links to several reputable sites that are up to the task. Upon launch, a small and simple window opens, displaying four rows of buttons that lead to several Web sites designed for every aspect of genealogy. You can quickly find long lists of links to people finders, family-tree makers, orphanages, genealogy tutorials, and countless other sites to help you in your quest. The freeware itself does not offer tools for creating family trees or building image Web sites, but collecting such a huge number of resources under one interface makes it a useful program. Anyone looking to get started on researching his or her family tree should check out the resources Genealogy Finder offers.

"Why can't I download to the folder I want it in?"

August 09, 2008  |  By sard3

 |  Version: Genealogy Finder 1.0

Pros

The one star is bogus, I had to use to submit this!

Cons

I wanted to put this in a sub-folder of "program Files", it would let me. I don't want to search for the program because I have too programs in Start->All Programs.

"I'd rather go to Cyndi's List"

January 05, 2006  |  By shellf

 |  Version: Genealogy Finder 1.0

Pros

Well, it works - and for the programmer it's probably a useful way to keep all their favourite links in one place.

Cons

What the programmer finds useful is not necessarily what you will find useful, especially if you come from another part of the world.

While the buttons give site names, they only give a short description of the actual content if you hover over them which is a real pain. I didn't want to waste my time visiting heaps of sites of no use me whatsoever while missing out on a site that possibly is of real value to you because it had a funny obscure name!

With internet resources changing constantly, and no update mechanism, the program will have a very limited shelf life.

A more comprehensive list of sites is at the Cyndi's List website (for example, there are plenty of others) - it's also free, it's kept updated, and it has many more links in more detailed cateogies. It fills the same purpose as this program, only does it better.

 |  Version: Genealogy Finder 1.0

Cons

This product would be great, but I couldn't get any of the links to open up. The program d/l fast & easy but it wouldn't work for me after d/l-ed.. maybe it's just my computer, I don't know.

"Couldn't get it to work.."

August 01, 2004

 |  Version: Genealogy Finder 1.0

Summary

I downloaded this program several times.. each time trying to open the file but was told that it was bad. I really thought it sounded like something I would use alot since I work on my own genealogy and often get emails from others asking for help in my area.. I'll try sometime in the future and see if they get the download to work for us.
