Branches is a full featured record manager for your family tree information.

Branches also provides support for interaction with the FamilySearch™ web site, including download of trees, Memories, facts, events, ordinances etc.

Branches is unlike other genealogy software. It is simple yet very powerful. We use patented methods so you can focus on the pure data in your genealogy database. Branches helps you visualize modern complex relationships, including multiple marriages and adoptions. It also shows you where you have data and where you are missing data.

As you zoom into the detail of your tree, there is a map of your entire tree in the upper left hand corner of your screen so you know exactly where you are, at all times. You never get lost.

We added powerful search capabilities for names, places and text so you can pinpoint where the search results are located in your tree.

No other genealogy record manager can do what Branches does. It is like Apple Maps™ for your family history and genealogy. You can see your entire family tree in a global view, then zoom in to see all the “street level” details like relationships, events, photos, sources, notes and documents.

Branches lets you do all of these things:
See a global view of your family tree
Understand and simplify complex relationships
Never get lost by using the Mini-Map of your tree
Easily see events, sources, notes, documents and photos
Bookmark a view so you can come back to it at anytime
View your tree from other perspectives using different root persons
Discover lines coming forward using descendent views
Show intermarriages between family lines
Find people, places and text very quickly anywhere in your data
And much more...

Branches accepts any standard GEDCOM file (a file created by genealogy programs to transfer data between programs).

We know you will be amazed at how fun and useful Branches can be.
