IMPORTANT NOTE: The Gen Viewer is a Java applet which allows you to browse a GEDCOM file from the web. This applet provides four different views of the GEDCOM data.
All of the detail information for the individual being displayed including parents, spouses, and children. Clicking on a parent, spouse, or child will display the family group view for that selected parent, spouse, or child.
Displays a five generation pedigree chart for an individual. Also lists spouses and children of the individual at the root of the tree. Birth and death information is displayed for a person as the mouse cursor travels over that individual. You can navigate up the tree by clicking on an ancestor or travel down the tree by clicking on a child.
Lists all individuals in the data base in alphabetical order by last name. This allows you to search for a particular surname of interest.
Displays any notes that that have been included for the currently selected individual. Generally this includes, but is not limited to, source references for the information gathered about the person.
Shows counts of all unique surnames contained in the file displayed in list form. The list can be ordered alphabetically by surname or by the frequency the surname appears in the file.
