Using “Kinship Archivist” You can import GEDCOM files and build web

pages that are unique to other genealogy programs. These web pages

allow family members or web surfers who know the special password (you

assign) the ability to EDIT and ADD PHOTOS instantly using only their

web browser.

In other words you can ADD a PHOTO to these web pages using Linux

Netscape and later edit a long story on the same web pages using

Windows XP with Internet Explorer. After they have made changes to

your web site you will receive an automatic e-mail telling which pages

have changed and how to upgrade your permanent database with these

new changes.

With the “Kinship Archivist” program you can FTP all of your web pages

to the server or you can FTP only one page at a time. Once you have

Windows XP and the “KA” program configured correctly it is a breeze to

build and maintain huge genealogy web sites. You can download this

program for free at this web site:
