GenealogyJ Sub_title: Alternative to GRAMPS
I've seen quite a few mentions of GRAMPS on the forum but no mention of GenealogyJ or 'GenJ'.
As it's a Java program it requires JRE so may not be to everyone's liking; that said I have the latest version (supposedly unstable but not a problem in my experience) running sweetly from hard-disk outside my save file i.e. in a single directory that also contains the JRE.
I haven't tried to pare down the JRE and I don't know if GenJ works with OpenJava, there's bound to be tons of bloat in there. If anyone is interested in this give me a shout and we can try to make it slimmer!
PS I was a contributor to the program but development has stalled since about 2010. There is a fork - Ancestris - but that doesn't seem to be very active either.
