Research & organize your family tree together
Gramps Web is a web app for collaborative genealogy. It is based on and interoperable with Gramps, the leading open source genealogy desktop application. Gramps Web is free & open source software and puts your privacy and your control of your research data first.
Access to all your data, respecting privacy
Browse all objects in your family tree: people, families, events, places, repositories, sources, citations, media objects, and notes.
Choose for each user whether they are allowed to view records marked as private. Private records are filtered out at the database layer for maximum security.
Collaborative editing & adding data on the go
Grant users the right to add new or editing existing objects.
Upload new sources, photos, or create new objects from any device.
Interactive family tree graphs
Navigate your family tree as an ancestor chart or as fan chart, with high-quality interactive graphics and configurable number of generations.
Display all places on an interactive, searchable map.
Turn a historical map stored as media object in Gramps into a custom map overlay.
Genealogy Blog included
Summarize your research in the form of blog stories with pictures. All data is stored in the Gramps database.
Switch the language of the interface between any of 40 languages translated by the Gramps community.
No lock-in – data import and export
Apart from being able to import data in various formats including Gramps XML and GEDCOM, Gramps Web makes it easy for users to download all of their data (family tree data, media files, user accounts) anytime, for backup purposes or to move to a different server. Your data is yours alone!
Generate printable reports
Since it's built directly on the core powering Gramps Desktop, you can generate almost all of the reports the desktop app supports right from the browser, including relationship graphs or book reports as PDF.
Full integration with Gramps Desktop
Gramps Web uses the core of Gramps, the most powerful and popular open-source cross-platform desktop application. It does not only use the same data model and database for storing genalogical data, but can also be synchronized both ways using a Gramps addon.
Edit your tree on the Web and in the fully-featured desktop app you've grown to love – they work together seamlessly.
Tag people in photos with automated face detection
Collaborate with your relatives to identify ancestors in old family photos. Thanks to automated face detection, tagging people is just two clicks away.
Powerful full-text search
The search engine supports searching all Gramps object types, including the content of text notes, and supports wildcard syntax and logical operators.
