GenoPro was created in 1998 launched as a freeware. At that time, the only
thing requested from users was for them to send a postcard if they felt that
GenoPro was worth the postcard and stamp.
A year later, GenoPro was downloaded 33,000 times solely from
Download.com to become the
most popular genealogy download of the year, a title it still holds
today. However, the cost of hosting GenoPro.com was around $300 a month,
plus $2,000 setup fees for software licenses. A decision was to be
made: drop GenoPro and move on to other things, or take GenoPro to new
heights in the corporate world.
Having chosen the second option, the next step was to improve GenoPro to
make it the leading genealogy tool. The creation of
often called GenoPro 2.0, took over 5 years of development with thousands of
testers all around the world. The internal changes to GenoPro were
considerable, from Unicode support to GenoMaps, notwithstanding the report
generator. Over this time period, GenoPro was redesigned to be the most
powerful genealogy software on the market. In late 2006, GenoPro 2007
was finally released, delivering on the promised features and many more.
GenoPro wishes to extend many thanks to all the Beta testers for their input
over the years.
GenoPro has continued to update and add new features. The latest version of GenoPro is GenoPro 2020.
GenoPro 2020 is expected to be the last version of GenoPro before the new release of GenoProX, the next
generation of GenoPro filled with tons of new features and a brand new design.
document human history"
Our aim is to provide a high-performance software based on the concept of
the genogram, available to of all walks of life. It
is our hope to provide users with a better understanding of society, of
families, of relationships, and of genetic diseases. We believe in the
importance of recording human history in our generation for the benefit of
the next, and of establishing a detailed record of each individual within
humanity. And as long as families grow, we will grow with them.
GenoPro development does not end here. Over the coming years, our dynamic
team is committed to providing new exciting features, such as a
collaboration system where multiple users can edit their family tree as well
as supporting macros and plugins.
