My Interest for genealogy and computing science gave
me the idea to create special softwares for genealogy.
During 2 years of research, I discovered 1000
ancestors, starting with 10 known persons, and
I wanted to share that with everybody.
After I understood the importance of the Gedcom format
file, I found several tools to set up my website, but
none of them fully satisfied me. For that reason I had
to do odd jobs using utilities to transform files.
Then, during Christmas evening, while I was opening
the second pack of oysters I got a “Flash” : PERL, the
language Perl. After that, the white wine helped me to
go further in my idea : creating my “own” software!
The advantage of Perl is that it is
platform-independent. You have a Mac Intosh, or you
use Linux? You shouldn’t have any problem with Perl. Unfortunatly, I only have a simple PC with Windows, so I didn’t get the chance to check how much it works out. Please contact me if you are ready to experience it!
Of course, these utilities are for free. Please send
me your contact and website addresses if you use it.
Moreover, I have an other plan : a database for
weddings, if you would like to send me the list of the
weddings from your database with the utility
