The following is a press release from The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding:

SANDY, UT: A major upgrade for The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding (or “TNG”), is now available from Next Generation Software. TNG 14 includes many enhancements and new features, plus a variety of improvements to the administrative interface. Existing users can purchase the upgrade at a discount by returning to their previous download page.

Some of the most notable changes include a general style facelift, plus improvements to image tagging, the relationship finder, and the GEDCOM import. The advanced search, the mod manager, and the report generator have also undergone significant overhauls. 

In addition, many adjustments have been made to keep TNG compatible with the latest versions of PHP and MySQL. A more detailed summary of all the new features can be found at

For those already running TNG, upgrading to the new version should be fairly easy and should take less than 15 minutes. A helpful video is also available to walk users through the process, but users can also pay a small fee to have someone perform the installation remotely.

TNG makes it easy to put your genealogy on your web site in a dynamic fashion. It uses a database to store your information, so the pages are created at the time they're requested. When you want to make a change, you only need to upload your GEDCOM file again, or enter the new facts directly online. TNG also allows you to link photos and other media to the people in your tree. You're in total control, so you can update your information or customize the look and feel any time you want. 

TNG is commercial software ($34.99 USD one-time license fee). In order to run TNG, your web site must support PHP (a programming language) and MySQL (the database). Existing users may upgrade to the latest version online starting at $17.99. The first version of TNG was published by Darrin Lythgoe in 2001.
