Ancestral Quest

Ancestral Quest is a mainline commercial genealogy database program. Portions of AQ 3 were licensed by Incline Software to LDS in the latter party's development of PAF 4.

There are a couple of Linux alternatives:

  • Gramps (Debian package) - XML-based, written in Python. Good data-model (reads all of GEDCOM 5.5).
  • GeneWeb (Debian package) - Written in OCaml, with CGI interface. Simpler data-mode, but handles 400k-name families without trouble.
