Kith and Kin Pro is a general-purpose program with some interesting quirks. Its main selling point is how it organises your tree – individuals are organised into family groups, and the tree view displays groups rather than individuals, which can (with some work) be coerced into the layout you want. Double- click a family group to view its properties in a pop-up window, then click individuals in that family to edit them.
It’s all a little long-winded – you can’t click and drag the tree to navigate, for example – and it’s often quicker to click through pop-up windows. All the key features for recording details are here, and the program supports GEDCOM although events are imported as a single ‘note’, which is annoying. Ultimately, there’s little here to set Kith and Kin Pro apart from competing products, but if you’re looking for a different way to navigate your tree, the 30- day trial is worth downloading. Use it for: viewing and editing GE DC OM files on PC orMac
Kith and Kin Pro tries a unique approach to displaying your tree – it doesn’t quite work, though
