The app created errors in the tree file that made the data unusable. Tried three times and after having dozens of family entered the file crapped out. Not recommended.

I've been using this app for a couple of months and have had no problems with it. I really like the interface, clean and convenient, and you can't beat the size and speed. Currently at v1.21.

Agree with FriedGeek. Thing keeps giving me errors. Real buggy! Avoid!

I also had problems losing data, which was very frustrating. I solved the problem by periodically saving a backup of the file so that if the file got screwed up, I could go back to the last saved version and not lose too much. Overall, I like the application.

Latest Version 1.26 seems to have an installer, and creates a couple of registry entries. Doesn't seem to be too major, but people should be aware...

Alan S 2007-02-21 07:42

For true portability, install, copy the exe and DLL to the USB stick, then uninstall - registry entries are only there to facilitate uninstall, according to the author.

Sometimes it doesn't let me link a descendant if I still don't have "married" the person I want to link, so I have to do stuff in the precise order... annoying!

More over, If I create an individual, when I want to link to that individual, sometimes it creates a new entry with the same name...

Real Good App, non bugs, I'm using 1.3.

I want it UNICODE. It's useless for me

This program works great. Since I can't get Family Tree Maker ver16 to work as a standalone on my USB drive this is great for my trips when I visit relatives. I have over 700 people entered into my Family Tree Maker file and this program supports all the entries easily and very fast.

Keep up the good work

There is another freeware portable app - Ahnenblatt
on http://www.ahnenblatt.com/
Very handy and feature-rich

I tried writing in Arabic and it saved fine. Why is it written to not support unicode?
