GeneaPro is now in the planning phase of very ambitious genealogical
software project. The project starts with a commitment to be truly
cross-platform, OS independent (Windows, Linux, Unix, etc.), multi-user, and
Open Source. And to add to the challenge, implementing the rigorous and
complex GenTech Genealogical Data Model, a feat which has not yet been
performed by any commercial developers or open source effort.

While planning and design has just begun, some general technical directions
and requirements have been developed. GeneaPro will be a Java Application
using JDBC to access database functions and use SWT for the GUI. Development
will be under the Eclipse IDE and SourceForge.net is at the heart of the
project management and administration support.

The GeneaPro project is currently looking for open source developers and
other helpers with a strong background in genealogy as a serious discipline
to assist in creating a premeire, freely-available, software product for the
hard-core genealogists everywhere.
