Developer website: Keith Clarke

SeeGEDCOMX is used to display lists of people in GEDCOM documents; draw ancestor, descendant and family trees; extract people from a GEDCOM according to year of birth, place of birth, name, etc; and generally to browse your way around a GEDCOM document in a WWW-like way. It's fast, but does need a fair bit of memory. The input database is read pretty quickly; 500 kilobytes is interpreted in a second or two on the slowest PowerMac. When a GEDCOM file is opened SeeGEDCOMX displays a window containing a listing of the all the individuals in the file. This is called a Group view and looks a lot like a List View in the MacOS Finder. There are 'folder' icons for each surname, with drop triangles that you use to display more information. This is the starting point for browsing through the entire database. It's as easy as navigating in the Finder itself, or using a Web browser. SeeGEDCOMX has unusual and (in my opinion!) rather nice ways of extracting parts of a GEDCOM database whether as new GEDCOM files, reports for use with a word processor (RTF), or as plain text.

There is limited support for editing a GEDCOM document. This is an area where the program is being actively developed and feedback is requested.
