Rodovid is a free online collaborative family tree portal. Originally a Ukrainian project, as of 2012 it had active communities in 21 languages. It provides a web service built using MediaWiki and its own Rodovid Engine software to help store and visualize family relationships.
Rodovid was founded in September 2005 by a group of developers and genealogy enthusiasts in Kiev, Ukraine. The name comes from the Ukrainian word rodovid, meaning "lineage" or "genealogy". As of 2012, Rodovid had over 500,000 total records for individuals and families across all languages, including over 200,000 in Ukrainian and Russian, making it the second largest free genealogy service online, and the largest in any language other than English.
It has experimented with supporting imports of GEDCOM files. Its Engine software is proprietary, but there have been discussions of releasing it openly. It supports layouts of family trees optimised for browsing and for printing, and claims it can generate trees of thousands of people in seconds.
The Rodovid project's data and descriptions are stored on servers in Kiev, and available under the Creative Commons Attribution license where not already in the public domain. Its data is periodically archived by the WikiTeam project at the Internet Archive.
