SmartGenealogy is a genealogy software application that helps with keeping records of multiple individuals, tracing the relations between them, and storing details about dates and places of birth, marriage, divorce, death, and other events in their life. It can be installed on all Windows versions out there.

Interacting with the GUI

The user interface looks overwhelming at a first glance because the utility has many features to offer so you need to experiment with the built-in parameters in order to understand how it works. In addition, you may appeal to the help manual in case you are having trouble decoding the configuration settings on your own.

Create a genealogical lineage

The application offers you the freedom to add new persons in the database by providing information about the surname, first name, social security number, physical description, note, source, and other items. You may also set up several date and place details for each person which are related to birth, death, burial, and residence.

SmartGenealogy lets you add several events in the database by entering details about the date, place, source, cause, note, and spouse info for marriages and divorces. The tool works with non-religious events (e.g. adoption, divorce, graduation, marriage, occupation, retirement, will) and religious events (e.g. baptism, blessing, confirmation, endowment).

Source references can be added to the database by specifying the author, publication, repository, text, abbreviation, title, and note. You may also store information about places, get details about the location, country, and latitude/longitude coordinates, as well as preview places on a map.

Other important options worth being mentioned enable you to include multimedia files, add repository references to your database by filling in details about the name, address, and phone number, identify persons with a number of children greater than a given value, and display a timeline with the persons in the database.

Database management features and extra tools

SmartGenealogy gives you the possibility to create multiple database files in preferred locations on your system. Plus, you may open, rename, delete, or close a database file, import information from GEDCOM files, add data from Excel items, as well as restore a database.

When it comes to exporting options, you are allowed to save data to GEDCOM, PDF, HTML, or Excel files, and back up the currently opened database.

What’s more, you can look for errors, duplicate items, invalid dates, and missing surnames in the database. A calendar can be employed for jumping to the next or previous month, and performing conversion tasks between Gregorian and Julian dates or vice versa.

A Notepad-like text editor is on the feature list for helping you take personal notes about persons, events, multimedia items, families, sources, and repositories. Plus, you may insert the current date, view the time and date displayed in the toolbar, and print the information.

Final observations

All things considered, SmartGenealogy comes packed with comprehensive features for helping you create a genealogical lineage containing detailed information about every relative. On the downside, not all of the application’s features are translated into English, and some of them are left in French.
