Genealogy Pro - Creating Web Pages

Create a web page in Genealogy Pro is easy. First, create your family tree in Genealogy Pro. If you are new to Genealogy Pro, you may wish to view the tutorial on creating a new Genealogy Pro file and building up the family tree database. You can build up your family data using Genealogy Pro, or if you have your family tree in an existing genealogy program, you can import it into Genealogy Pro from the GEDCOM format.

  • charts - a directory of all chart pictures to be uploaded (chart pictures will only exist if inclusion of chart images option is chosen in the preferences)
  • database.sql.z - a compressed file of the database in structured query language (SQL) format.
  • home.php - your home page file
  • documents - a directory of all images and other documents to be uploaded
