    GenKey© The Family Tree Editor
    GenKey© The Family Tree Editor is a shareware Java application I created to put together a family tree on the Wide World Web. It's available from some of the standard archive sites as well as my home pages on CompuServe and America Online.
    I am planning a major upgrade of GenKey©, including an updated file setup, so I don't advise downloading it at this time.

    ZD Net Software Library
    Top 10,000 Software Titles are Tested, Rated, Categorized and Reviewed
    The ZD Net Software Library introduces a new standard for shareware on the Web: each of its 10,000 applications is carefully tested and screened for viruses and defects, then reviewed and rated by Ziff-Davis editors. Just as Ziff-Davis magazines such as PC Magazine and PC Week have been established as the definitive source for commercial software reviews, ZD Net is also regarded as the definitive source for shareware reviews; all products are judged by the same high editorial and testing standards.
