Families uses a highly efficient database implementation, allowing very large family files to be supported. Users have successfully displayed and edited files containing over 300,000 individuals.

Families requires a companion program running on the PC to transfer family files to and from the Android device. This program, Families Sync, can be downloaded free of charge from www.telgen.co.uk/families.

A no brainer for genealogists! If you use Legacy & a smartphone and/or tablet, then you want this to always have your tree(s) photos, documents et al with you!

On the run A great app. A little learning was needed and I'm still learning.But it's great to sit with elderly relatives over a coffee and pick their memory and record it right onto my phone. No bulky laptops or napkins . The fonts don't bother me I just want the great mobility I now have .Thanks

Companion to Legacy This app is an excellent Android companion to PCs Legacy. Using Families Sync, I had no difficulties in transferring my Legacy files and photos to my BAUHN Android tablet via a USB connection. The end result was great all-be-it a simplified version of Legacy. A great app that makes my family history research very mobile.
