Gramps: Free genealogy application

Gramps is a free geneaology software released in 2001. It is written in Python and is licensed under GNU general public license. This application works on GNU/Linux, Windows and Mac OS. It is available in many different languages. You can install third party plugins to give Gramps extra functions such as filters, reports, tools and many others. When you gather your data you can create, edit and store your family tree. Also, you can write notes and create events for each person that is in your family. Some examples of events would be birth, marriage, children, divorce, death etc. When you are done inputting all your information it is possible to create data and graph reports in many different formats. Gramps has a good Wiki page where you can learn how to use the program and gives you information on how to find the best sources for your genealogy research project. The website includes a .deb package for easy installation for your Ubuntu Linux. If you are interested in creating a family tree or need some help with your genealogy research than check out Gramps Wiki and their application.
