GEDCOM Viewer for Android Released

I'm very happy to start this blog with the announcement that ezGED Viewer v1.0.0 was released today on Android Market (here).

The market blurb sums it up like this:

  • View GEDCOM files exported from current genealogy applications and Internet services.
  • View by individuals, families, sources, database info, or descendants tree. 
  • Top level views are linked to additional detail views. 
  • GEDCOM versions 5.5 and 5.5.1 supported. 
  • ASCII, UTF-8, UTF-16, and ANSEL character sets accepted.

It is the first genealogy app that I have developed for Android devices. If I have chosen the name of this blog correctly, then more apps should follow.

In the near term, my plan is to post end-user tips about using ezGED, talk about future enhancements to it, and hopefully get some feedback on how it can be improved.



  1. Bon debut, simple et basé sur le GEDCOM.
    On attend la suite. Bravo

  2. I like ezGED Viewer but how can I sync the GEDCOM files between PC and my Android devices?

    I want to use Google Drive but I cannot find what folder the files are located in on my Android devices so I cannot get ezGED to open them.

    1. Sorry for the delay in responding.

      The Google Drive app requires that you mark a file as "offline" for it to be copied onto your device. The app has encryption enabled by default, so make sure you also disable that in the app settings. Each offline file will be located in a subdirectory under:

      I've found DropBox easier to work with.
