Note: Although Osk hasn't been updated lately, the developer is working on a completely new version, so keep an eye open for an update!

Osk is perfect for you if you work with any kind of family information. It allows you to keep unlimited information on anything you want. This software is person-based, so everything regarding a person is always visible.

Osk allows you to work with genealogy information in a very easy and fast way. Keep track of friends, family, celebrities, and any other information that you want to keep track of.

Some Features:

What's New

Version 4.71:
  • Now you are able to have more information on each person in your database. You can keep e-mails and phone numbers and more directly. You can of course add them to the information.
  • Lower memory footprint. According to tests this new version uses less memory than before.
  • More speed. Even though Osk is the fastest genealogy software out there, the software is even faster than more...

I'm now at 4.51.3 and I can't get my ged file to import properly. Everything imports but the dates are off. The ged file has the date in the DD MMM YYYY format but the resulting OSK file has the year off by 1 and the month and day wrong. Any help appreciated from those who have successfully imported ged files.

My experience so far hasn't been nearly as rosy as the last guy's. I, too, haven't been able to register my Osk - bought from the promo. The original Osk 4.51.0 wouldn't allow all three fields to accept data. AND today's 4.51.1 STILL acts the same way, ie: only accepts data in two fields. And there was no response to my enquiry. I do note that MACupdate's Osk page today refers to the new version as 4.51.2, but the download button still delivers only 4.51.1. But you have to install it to find out the number.

Needless to say, I'm not nearly as happy.

Apart from the quality of Osk itself, the support from the developer is exceptional. I had a registration issue with the license I bought yesterday, and the iterative response process went at near on-line chat speed. And it resulted in an update to the application the same evening/night. And all of that on the day app was the MUPromo, so I assume there was a lot of working in responding and sending out serial numbers.
Again: exceptional!

This might be a great program. I tried it out a year ago and I don't remember much about it.

I'd like to try it again but Osk is smart enough to know I ran it all those months ago and has figured my 30-day trial period is over. I have the option of forking over money or quitting.

Look, I appreciate developers need to make a buck, but you might win a few more customers if you let people see your new features.

I had a little difficulty finding the way to import Gedcom, but developer quickly helped me through it.
I successfully uploaded 16,800 entries with datesl, locations, and notes - a very large file.

While this is a young program with more development needed, it shows a great deal of promise and I look forward to many years of using it.

I have now managed to import my GEDCOM file. The Osk only exports 61 of my 3220 records to the web and fails to produce a main.css that it relies on. Author pls note.
