Additional information: 

If you're interested in an easy to use portable application then ScionPC should be at the top of your list.

I love the lack of gender constraints, e.g. I can add both of my grandchild's same sex parents without resorting to tricks such as changing the gender of one of the parents. Both members of marriages are referred to as partner's. (There is a warning that the couple is the same sex.) I wish other genealogy programs would adopt this standard. Can document a Sex Change.

ScionPC has exceptional date format support, e.g. Circa, Before, After, Estimated, and Date Range modifiers as well as Georgian, Julian, Hebrew, French Revolutionary, Islamic, Persian, Indian National, Coptic, User Defined and Unknown calendars. I like the pop up calendar for use when entering dates.

The program creates a complete web site for upload.  Supports CSS.

Lists include repository, note, and media.

Global merge function for all identical Sources, Repositories, and Notes.

Supports other languages and database format is XML compliant yet only supports the ascii character set.


Only one source citation is permitted per event.  Only one source format.  No book print function.

Only one citation per event.  Only one source format.  No private notes.  No book print function.  No history list or back button to revisit previously viewed pages.  No fan charts.
