Gramps is a free genealogy program. Before the project Don Allingham's father suggested the name "Gramps" and then puzzled out the backronym: Genealogical Research and Analysis Management Programming System. Reading the story of the first 5 years and how Gramps came into existence gives considerable insight into the project's direction. After all, one of the basic concepts of genealogy is that: if you don't know orgins, you don't know where you are going. Although we've dropped the backronym and have adopted "Gramps" instead of the uppercase "GRAMPS", the goals remain the same.
Gramps helps you track your family tree. It allows you to store, edit, and research genealogical data. Gramps attempts to provide all of the common capabilities of other genealogical programs, but, more importantly, to provide an additional capability of integration not common to these programs. This is the ability to input any bits and pieces of information directly into Gramps and rearrange/manipulate any/all data events in the entire database (in any order or sequence) to assist the user in doing research, analysis and correlation with the potential of filling relationship gaps.
Gramps is programmed in the Python language.
Gramps currently runs on Linux, Microsoft Windows, Apple MacOS, Solaris, BSD, other UNIX-like systems. For more information about getting Gramps, see the Download page.
