About GenoPro


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 to become the most popular genealogy download of the year, a title it still holds today. However, the cost of hosting 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 GenoPro Beta, 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.


Mission statement

"To 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.
