Welcome to GenoPro Family Trees!
GenoPro offers a free service for publishing genealogy online. If you are looking to
publish your family tree and pictures on the web, but are somewhat confused about
how to get started, GenoPro offers you an easy solution. With a few clicks of the
mouse, you can publish your complete family tree to our server familytrees.genopro.com.
How does it work?
This feature is built-in to GenoPro's report generator. When generating an HTML
report, select the option to publish your report to our server instead on your local
drive or website. GenoPro will upload your HTML pages, family tree and pictures
to your account on our server.
Benefits of Publishing to FamilyTrees.GenoPro.com:
- It's free! You are not required to own a website or to pay a subscription
for web hosting in order to host your HTML pages. We already own the infrastructure
to host all your pages.
- It's easy to use! It only takes a few mouse clicks and a few keystrokes to
get on your way. No prior web hosting knowledge is required to make it work.
For those who wish to publish on their own web server, you are welcome to read our
technical documentation to configure your web server.
- It's fast! Our built-in publisher protocol uses compression and other advanced
caching techniques, making it faster to publish with us than publishing via FTP.
- It's ad-free! We do not plan to insert any advertising either. Rather, we
hope you will create links to our site, bringing us more visitors who may become
fellow GenoPro customers.
- It's a reliable backup! Each report contains a copy of your family
tree. If your hard disk crashes, you can recover by re-downloading your family
tree from our server.
- There is no quota! There is no limit on the number of pages and pictures,
as long as your published content is related to genealogy and is web-friendly.
Where's the Catch?
You may become a genealogy addict using our software.
You are welcome to publish as many pages as you wish, provided the content is related
to genealogy and is web-friendly. In other words, don't upload a 20-MB true-color
bitmap while you can store the same picture in the JPEG format for only 200 KB.
If you have a [large] family tree having one million individuals and thousand
of pictures, you are welcome to publish it to
http://familytrees.genopro.com/. In fact, we will be happy to assist
you by optimizing the report generator and our web publisher protocol to
handle such large trees. Try to keep pictures to less than 300 KB so they
are easy to download by our visitors. In the future, we will write a tool
(robot) to scan the published reports to send an email message if a picture
is too large and/or automatically re-sample (shrink) the picture.
If you upload files containing applications, games or other non-genealogy content,
we will disable your account. We do not plan to police the content of your family
report, however if we receive complaints of abuse, we will examine each complaint
on a case-by-case basis.
Publishing your report on the Web
Publishing your genealogy report to http://familytrees.genopro.com/
is done via the report generator. To invoke the report generator, click on
the Generate Report toolbar icon
to get the following dialog.
Generate an HTML report
Next, click on the button Web Publishing. You will get the following
dialog. All you need is an account with us so our server can store your genealogy
files in a database under your account. There are three ways to get an account
- Subscribe to our free newsletter.
- Request a free 14-day evaluation
- Click on the button Create Account and/or Send Password.
Creating an account is easy. Enter your email and optionally your username.
If you do not provide a username, we will generate a unique number as your username.
If your email is already in our database, we will send your password by email without
changing anything to your account. At anytime, you can change your username
or email in the control panel of the support forum.
The report generator uses your username to create a unique URL for your family tree
on the web. For instance, if you pick MrSpock as your username, then your
genealogy report homepage will appear at
http://familytrees.genopro.com/MrSpock/. GenoPro may use some username for
specific genealogy trees, such as Harry Potter (
That's it. Click on the Generate button and GenoPro will do the rest
of the work for you.

control panel of the support forum.
Options for Generating a Report

choose to generate a report on your own hard drive, click on the Browse button and
pick the folder you want to store your report.
There are other options, such as the data source. By default, GenoPro generates
