What does HuMo-gen offer you?
HuMo-gen is a free, open-source and multilingual server-side program that makes it very easy to publish your genealogical data on the internet as a dynamic and searchable family tree website.
HuMo-gen was created and is being constantly developed by Huub Mons in the Netherlands and all credits for this wonderful program go to him. If you are Dutch-speaking, please visit Huub's site instead. This English website is brought to you by Yossi Beck and aims at the international public. For a brief note you can contact me through the contact button on the top menu. For assistance with the installation and use of Humo-gen, please join the English Forum.
HuMo-gen is classified as a Gedcom to PHP program. This means it knows to take a Gedcom file (files that can be created and exported by all major genealogy programs) and convert it to PHP files, that display dynamic webpages on the internet.
No more tedious creation of separate ancestor or descendant reports and uploading them to the web after every alteration or update of your data. Now you just upload one updated Gedcom file, read it in - and your website is updated and ready. Your end-users can create their own descendant, ancestor and outline reports from any person in the database!
It is now also possible to create your tree from a scratch in HuMo-gen, without importing Gedcom files from other, PC-based programs. Since version 4.8.2 HuMo-gen has its own CMS (Content Management System) that you can use to create your own web pages, with information about your research, background information and of course your self-designed front page.
