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.
