== Web architecture ==
+
 
+
GeneWeb behaves as a HTTP server, and provides its interactive user interface through any web-browser including Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera. It can be installed:
+
 
+
* '''On a stand-alone machine''': see [[install-pc|hot to install on a personal computer]].
+
 
+
* '''On a web server''': for sharing over the Internet your genealogy data. See http://opensource.geneanet.org/projects/geneweb/wiki/En_Linux_FAI.  
+
 
+
In both cases, GeneWeb accepts, as does any HTTP server, multiple simultaneous requests. In the case where several of the requests implies an update of the base, appropriate locking mechanisms will prevent conflicting access, possibly requiring re-submit of some of the requests.
+
 
+
GeneWeb creates new HTML pages from its data bases for each request.
+
 
+
== Data Privacy ==
+
 
+
Wizard Access Right allows selected members to view and edit all of your genealogy data. The password can be changed at any time.
+
 
+
Friend Access Right allows a larger group (family and friends) to view your genealogy data but not to edit it. The password can be changed at any time.
+
 
+
People which are not wizards nor friends will not see data about persons born less than 150 years ago <!-- is this a settable parameter --> unless this is explicitly allowed.
+
 
+
Both for Wizards and Friends, passwords can be either global (single password for one base) or individual (one password per person).
+
 
+
== Multilingual Interface ==
+
 
+
GeneWeb has a multilingual interface currently translated into the following languages: German, English, Danish, Spanish, Finnish, French, Italian, Dutch, Swedish.
+
 
+
You can edit translations and you can translate the interface into your own language.
+
 
+
== Spelling Variations==
+
 
+
GeneWeb will find the spelling variations of the name you have entered in the search form, for example:
+
 
+
* Juan Carlos de Borbón
+
* John Charles Bourbon
+
 
+
You can search a woman by her maiden name and her married name.
+
 
+
== Titles of Nobility ==
+
 
+
You can add a title of nobility and a year range, for example: Henry VII, king of England, 1485-1509. It allows you to search individuals by title of nobility and to display a timeline.
+
 
+
== Notes ==
+
 
+
A free format zone is associated with each individual. One can enter text adorned with HTML and/or WiKi style formatting, references to other individuals in the base and images or link to images (see [[images]]).
+
 
+
A WiKi style mechanism allows you to create secondary pages to add information about an individual, a family or a place. These pages can be linked to individuals in your family tree.
+
 
+
GeneWeb maintains an inverse table showing you where in the base a particular page or individual is referenced.
+
 
+
== User-Defined Interface ==
+
 
+
You can change many of the UI parameters such as background color, background image, text colour and default language using the [[gwsetup]] web interface.
+
 
+
For more global changes in the UI, a "[[templates|template]]" mechanism provides a choice of UI style and content directly accessible from the URL.
+
 
+
The even more adventurous programmer can customize, with a GeneWeb specific [[template-programming|programming language]] of sorts, the various files of a template and build his own.
+
 
+
== Family Events ==
+
 
+
GeneWeb displays the latest and upcoming birthdays, and the last ten deaths. This information can be viewed by 'Wizard' and 'Friend' users.
+
 
+
GeneWeb version 6.08 and later maintains a list of personal and family events with dates, witness, notes and sources for each event.
+
 
+
== Relationship and Consanguinity Calculator ==
+
 
+
GeneWeb comes with an efficient relationship and consanguinity calculator developed in collaboration with Didier Rémy, Research Director at INRIA.
+
 
+
The relationship calculator calculates the family relationship between two persons who share one or more common ancestors. It displays the lines from the two persons to the common ancestors and the type of relationship: cousin, once-removed, twice-removed, etc.
+
 
+
The consanguinity rate is 25% for siblings, 6.25% for first cousins, etc. It can help to understand inbreeding in families. For example, the consanguinity rate of the parents of Charles II of Spain was 25.26% because of multiple inbreeding marriages and though they were not siblings.
+
 
+
GeneWeb is one of the few genealogy softwares that can calculate relationship and consanguinity rate.
+
  
== GEDCOM Import/Export ==
+
[[Image:Roglo.png|right|160px|link=http://roglo.eu/roglo?lang=en|thumb|alt=Roglo logo, a tree with flags.|Roglo uses GeneWeb and contains more than 8.5 million individuals.]]

GeneWeb uses a '''lightweight [[gwd|web server]]''' that can support any number of genealogical databases. Its '''[[lexicon|multilingual]] interactive [[UI|user interface]]''' supports an unlimited number of individuals, families and events using any web browser, including Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera.

The utility [[gwsetup]] provides a friendly web interface for configuration and maintenance.
  
GeneWeb can import and export genealogy data in GEDCOM file format.

GeneWeb displays birth, death and wedding '''anniversaries'''. It also shows some '''statistics''', such as oldest living persons, recent weddings or deaths, and age pyramids for a given year.

Any GEDCOM data not compatible with GeneWeb is preserved in the "notes" area associated with each person.

GeneWeb is free, open source genealogy software written in OCaml by Daniel de Rauglaudre, a researcher at the Institut national de recherche en informatique et en automatique (Inria).

This program, distributed under the GNU General Public License, is available for Unix, Linux, Microsoft Windows and macOS platforms in the Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish languages.

Roglo logo, a tree with flags.
Roglo uses GeneWeb and contains more than 8.5 million individuals.

GeneWeb uses a lightweight web server that can support any number of genealogical databases. Its multilingual interactive user interface supports an unlimited number of individuals, families and events using any web browser, including Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera. Like an HTTP server, it creates new HTML pages on the fly from its databases for each request. It can be installed on a local computer or a distant web server as a daemon or using CGI to share your genealogy over the Internet. The utility gwsetup provides a friendly web interface for configuration and maintenance.

GeneWeb displays birth, death and wedding anniversaries. It also shows some statistics, such as oldest living persons, recent weddings or deaths, and age pyramids for a given year. Since GeneWeb 7, all kinds of personal and family events are managed with dates, witnesses, notes and sources for each event.

Global and individual notes use wikitext syntax and allow internal links between individuals, extra images or HTML documents.

GeneWeb can import and export genealogical database in its own GW format or in GEDCOM file format. Data not compatible are preserved in notes.

GeneWeb is one of a few genealogy programs that comes with an efficient relationship and consanguinity rate calculator, to help understand inbreeding in families.

Passwords secure databases with accounts for both “friends” (to access private data) and “wizards” (to update permissions). Private data can be protected with a customisable configuration file, for example, to hide people born less than 100 years ago. Access to each individual page can even be filtered one by one.

The appearance of the interface can be customised with templates in addition to tweaking CSS files. A specific programming language permits building new templates.

GeneWeb allows searching for titles of nobility and displaying them in a timeline. It can search names with spelling variations and women can be searched for by their maiden names.
