Whether you are a professional academic or a family-history hobbyist, GenoPro 2007 can undoubtedly meet your genealogical needs. GenoPro lets you do everything you would expect from genealogy software, such as create family profiles, link individuals, and add such information as birth and death dates. But where GenoPro excels is in the collection of additional metadata.
The best example of this is the program's options to characterize the emotional relationship between two people. The software cuts to the chase, offering such unique descriptions as Violence, Cut-off/Estranged, and Manipulative. Moreover, you are not limited to creating families: the software supports the creation of social organizations and non-family relationships, such as "Reporting to." GenoPro also offers impressive export features, including copying to Excel, exporting to GEDCOM (a genealogy interchange format), and creating SQL scripts. You can also publish your tree to the GenoPro Web site for free. Developers can use the GenoPro SDK for more options. The Help files were also impressive. The application opens to a list of useful tips, and the Help file itself is clear, well illustrated, and includes quick video tutorials. Searching Help turns up an active user forum.
GenoPro 2007 is not perfect: its Help file is accessible online only, and the GUI is not modern, with colors, lines, and fonts--which you cannot change--that are bland at best. But these are minor irritations compared with the richness of GenoPro 2007. Newbies and experts alike will be amazed by the depth and flexibility of this application.
