Build your own genealogy website quickly and easily — with TNG!

"This program is a winner!" — Dick Eastman, Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter.

CURRENT VERSION: 11.0.2 (16 September 2016)
PRICE: $32.99 USD

The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding© ("TNG") is a powerful way to manage and display your family tree on your own website, all without generating any static HTML. Instead, your information is stored in a database and the pages are created on demand. All you need is a website and TNG!

If your web server supports PHP and MySQL (the language and database used by the software), you can set up and run TNG with very little effort. Need a hosting provider?

Don't settle for ancient site creation methods that leave you with thousands of dull-looking HTML pages, or for freeware solutions that seem thrown together!

Need Web Hosting?

Need a low-cost hosting provider who supports PHP/MySQL? I recommend Simply Hosting, for only $4.99/month (or less if you pay annually). They're very friendly to TNG users and will even install TNG for you at no extra charge. Plus, they'll give TNG users 50% off their first order!



If that option won't work for you, try doing a web search for "php mysql web hosting". You can choose any host, so long as they support PHP and MySQL.

"Please add me to your list of happy and very satisfied users. Look at http://www.kloosterman.be and everybody can see for themselves why I am so satisfied with your TNG program. A great genealogy program, very fast, well done, with a lot of possibilities and of course the languages. I'm getting a lot of compliments about my site. I always refer them to you Darrin and tell them that without your excellent program, after sale service, support and your help with the TNG scripts I could not have made such a professional looking website. It is the best program I have seen yet for genealogical websites and the price is a bargain!! You can quote me on that!"
