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
