Tools Menu

This menu regroups all the tools to explore, manipulate and analyse genealogical data.


Each of these actions is described below.

When the action has its own description page - it is bold - click on it to get all the details about it.

Certain menu actions only apply to the selected genealogy and will therefore only be available if one is open. Otherwise they will be greyed out. To enable them, open a genealogy.

Compare Genealogies
