Genealogy Basics

The things you need to get started in genealogy are simple.
I began with the following SHAREWARE and FREEWARE:

1. You will need a ZIP program to unzip some files that you download. if you do not have one, try this fully functioning shareware, WINZIP.
2. You will need a genealogy program to enter your data into. Start with this shareware, Brothers Keeper for windows.
3. Here is a useful genealogy utility. Small, dos-based, but packed with loads of info! GENKIT.
4. You will soon be ready to go onto the web. When you are able to make a gedcom (compact file of ancestors) file from the data that you have entered into your genealogy program...convert it to html web pages with this freeware, Ged2Web.
