Go to the developers' Web site, this site is out of date. The product is USD 50.00 with a 30 day free trial. BUT it will only demonstrate some features if you have less than 2500 people and to see some features (like the GEDCOM to xls/csv etc, that I want) they only trust it with their own sample GEDCOM so you cannot evaluate if it will work on your .GED I'm annoyed at this site for being out of date. The developers have lost a customer because of their their stingy free trial.

May be great software, but it's not free. It's free only up to a point. I have been send a huge GEDCOM file that seems to be oddly constructed. I was hoping that GedScape would open it with each field in its proper place. Unfortunately, I can't tell without buying the full version first. I'm not begrudging them the right to charge for their software, but they shouldn't call it "free" if they're actually charging for it.
