webtrees is a free open source web-based genealogy application intended for collaborative use.

It requires a web server that has PHP and MySQL installed.

It is compatible with standard 5.5.1-GEDCOM files.


webtrees is a fork of PhpGedView, it was created in early 2010, when a majority of active PhpGedView developers stopped using SourceForge[5][6] due to issues with exporting encrypted software.[7][8] webtrees is the second fork of PhpGedView. In late 2005 the first one, called Genmod,[9] was created.

On 26 July 2010, a month before version 1.0.0 of webtrees was released, Dick Eastman, who publishes Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, introduced webtrees as "the wave of the future."[10]

The day version 1.0.0 of webtrees was released, Tamura Jones reviewed and compared the differences of it to PhpGedView.[11]
