"Lovely program. Suits all my needs."

August 31, 2012  |  By RonnyKern

 |  Version: HuMo-gen 4.8.3

Pros

I've been with HuMo-gen for a year or two now and love it.
All genealogy features you might want, with good reports and pretty charts.
Nice layout and skins to choose from.
Quite easy to install on the web and once installed works out-of-the-box. You don't need to be a computer wiz.
The help forum is great. The programmers themselves are online frequently, so you get swift response for any request. If you follow the forum you see that requests for new features from users are very quickly implemented, so the program is growing all the time.
I particularly like the excellent source system, the merge system and the relationship calculator.
I know a bit of programming (not professional!) and since the code is very straightforward it is easy to make your own adjustments.
A year ago or so the code (that originally had a lot of Dutch in it) was totally changed to English so that anyone with some programming knowledge can work with it if he/she chooses to do so.

Cons

I haven't really found any yet. It offers all the features you would expect from an online genealogy program and in my eyes it is more user-friendly and faster than other similar programs.

Summary

I think I basically summed it up under "Pros" above, so I won't repeat that.
I recommend it to anyone who wants an easily accessible and user-friendly genealogy site!

"Free. pretty and easy. Simple installation. Many charts"

June 15, 2011  |  By Yvonne_Pellegier

 |  Version: HuMo-gen (PHP) 4.6.1

Pros

A wide range of reports, charts and genealogy tools. Easy installation. Runs smoothly without bugs. Nice skins. Neat programming that makes it easy to change code to my liking. Support forum. Frequent new versions with new additions.

Cons

The skins are a nice addition, though I feel the program could be even more streamlined. (JQuery??). This doesn't take away though from its many assets.

Summary

Strongly recommended! I posted a review here 2 years ago for a much earlier version. Already then I liked humogen a lot, but since then it has come a long way ahead, with many more reports and charts and a very intuitive interface.
I am definitely going to stick with it!

"Very nice program"

June 15, 2011  |  By kathyberman

 |  Version: HuMo-gen (PHP) 4.6.1

Pros

I am with HuMo-gen 3 years and enjoy the program very much. Even though I am pretty computer illiterate, I had no problem installing on the server thanks to the clear manual.
Never had problems with the program and each version brings new features.

Cons

None so far. It's free and bug-free!

Summary

I had been looking around for a while for a genealogy program that offers what I wanted and after trying out several other programs I happened to stumble on HuMo-gen and fell in love with it at first site. It is free and safe and a lot of reports and tools. There is a good support forum with swift answers. The main humogen site (www.humo-gen.com) has an English and Dutch interface and a very extensive manual. Since a year or so ago it ships with several nice skins that the end users can choose from.
Thanks to Huub and the folks that made this cute and easy program!

"Excellent program!"

June 12, 2011  |  By JMleigh

 |  Version: HuMo-gen (PHP) 4.6.1

Pros

Works flawlessly, nice layout with many skins. All reports and charts one could want. Quite easy to install on the server.
I'm using the program for many years to my fullest satisfaction. Humogen has a great support forum that assists everyone.

Cons

None whatsoever. In all the years I have been using the program I never encountered any bugs or flaws. To the contrary, the humo-gen support team is extremely helpful in accommodating the users

Summary

I have been very satisfied with the product for several years now. I immediately install each new version with new items.
I do not at all understand the person who wrote here that the program has bugs. In all the years I have used humo-gen and have followed the support forum, I have never encountered people who complained about bugs. To the contrary, the humo-gen team is always open to suggestions to add new features and accommodate special needs.
In short, I find it a fantastic program to share my genealogy data with my family and friends.

"VERY buggy!"

May 24, 2011  |  By ftowle1

 |  Version: HuMo-gen (PHP) 4.6.1

Pros

Great Idea - nice layout.

Cons

full of programming errors - I know I'm a bigot but why Dutch as default language user language and half internal code in Dutch.

Summary

Would like to get through this and make it work - and I do know PHP/MySQL quite well but when errors come up in javascript compressed file - yuck. I'll let you and the developer know if I get this working and maybe developer can rerelease with my efforts included.

I know 'beggers can't be choosers' but this should really have never gotten to c-net. Unless you speak Dutch you will never get very far. I've found at least 15 errors in the coding - mostly assumptions that are not valid or variables not instantiated before reference and cause logic to fail. If this was written by an amateur - well OK, if by an IT professional - shame on you. I take back my offer to clean this up and resubmit - I DON'T speak or read Dutch and would have to go over every line of code and translate to figure out what the heck this guy is trying to do.

"Sounded like a great idea"

May 22, 2011  |  By DeeJay30

Cons

"Don't look any further, this is the one"

December 07, 2010  |  By Suyderman

 |  Version: HuMo-gen (PHP) 4.3

Pros

Customizable, speedy and validated code and CSS, lots of features, charts, reports and a very good helpful community

Cons

Maybe the admin-section could use some more logical indexing, but that's all I can think of

Summary

When you want to have your family-tree online this is really the best way to do it. There's a forum, a wiki and lots of helpful people that guide you through your problems, if any.
The basic install is a bit very no-nonsense but you can make your own stylesheet and set it as default or let a cookie remember your choice. Adding people can be done online or local, you can upload gedcom-files, and download them as well.
Everything you think of is possible and if not available they will make sure it will be in the near future.

February 01, 2010  |  By JMleigh

 |  Version: HuMo-gen (PHP) 4.1

"A job well done..."

September 24, 2009  |  By Yvonne_Pellegier

 |  Version: HuMo-gen (PHP) 3.2

Pros

Cute program. Doesn't look very sophisticated at first glance, but does a great job.
I got thru the installation process without too much trouble and got the site running.
Might stick with this. I'm going to change the outlay a bit for my needs.

Cons

The PHP source code uses some Dutch (??) variable names, which makes it somewhat harder to follow the coding, but then again... most of us never need to look at the source code anyway.

Summary

Neat program. Lots of useful features and amazing what can be done with just over 200 KB of code! I like the flexibility.

Pros

Very easy installation.
User-friendly both for computer illiterate persons as myself and for visitors.

Summary

Really nice program. I have been using it for a few months now (downloaded it from the website - sorry Cnet...).
Recommendable.
It's so easy to install - so worth giving it a try.
