WPGenealogy is a new add on for WordPress websites that makes building a family hostory website simple and easy.

If you already have a WordPress blog you will know that it’s very straight- forward to add advanced capabilities by using ‘Add ons’ – many of which are free or offer some free features with more options if you by a premium version.

WPGenealogy has been built to enable anyone who would like to own their own family history website to easily create one.

You can import Gedcom files from your desktop family tree program and the plugin will convert these into an easy-to-navigate website.

The plugin will show person reports and link these to family charts – both ancestor and descendent charts and well as directly to other family members, making it easy to explore a family’s whole history, person-by-person.

There are also security and privacy options which enable you to limit who can access your information.

More information can be found at www.wpgenealogy.net and the free version can be downloaded from wordpress.org/plugins/wpgenealogy/
