A GENDEX file is an index of personal data and a short page URL. It is used to index a genealogical website by a genealogical search engine. The idea behind it is to join numerous pedigrees of individual genealogical researchers to a central database, while the individual genealogical researchers are still keeping all control over their data. Unlike a GEDCOM file a GENDEX file contains no information about the family relationships between individuals. This means the file is useless without the corresponding website.

The GENDEX file only contains public data.

The search engines below are known to accept the GENDEX textfile created by this module:

On the Fancy Gendex configuration page select the trees you want to include and push the button to create your GENDEX file.
