Services for Collaborative Genealogical Research


GenesONS GEDCOM Viewing and Management (PhpGedView)

The GenesONS GEDCOM Viewing and Management facilities use the open source PhpGedView software to allow you to easily develop and manage a number of family trees in a collaborative manner.

Once you have organised your main data using ONSshoebox, you can then share and manage the onward evolution of one or more family trees using this PhpGedView facility. This GenesONS service component provides full editing capabilities, full privacy functions, supports GenesONS ONS One Name Study Studies family history genealogy collaborative research wiki file storage discussion forum photo gallery PhpGedView ONSshoebox GEDCOM hosting collaborate data repository tools share Gallery subscription servicemultimedia such as photos and document images, and can import your existing tree from a GEDCOM file. The updated GEDCOM file can then be exported at any time for any off-line use that you may have.

Now you can simplify the process of collaborating with your research group in the development of your family tree with the latest version of your tree always available for the rest of the group to access.

This GenesONS service is provided as a centrally hosted facility as a component in a number of Subscription Packages. Your users can access the service from a menu at a dedicated web site that is established for each subscription. The service provides the software fully installed with a dedicated MySQL database and is ready to use with an initial login/password for the group administrator. The group administrator can then upload an initial GEDCOM file and add as many new users as required with defined permissions. The widening group of researchers can then evolve and maintain the research data whilst GenesONS maintains the operational aspects of the system, including PhpGedView version management as new releases are made available. The group's usage of the service contributes to the Storage and Bandwidth Resource Limits that are aggregated across all service components within any particular Subscription Package.
