After more than a year, GenealogyJ (GenJ) has been updated to version 2.4. GenealogyJ is a cross-platform genealogy application written in Java.

Official Description:

GenealogyJ is a viewer and editor for genealogic data, suitable for hobbyist, family historian and genealogy researcher. GenJ supports the Gedcom standard, is written in Java and offers many views like family tree, table, timeline, geography and more.

Download it from here (SourceForge) if you are curious.

Genealogy Software News lists these highlights:
* New features and improved useability
* New Reports
* New Languages
* Map events geographically

There is an install note that applies to Mac users: “For everyone not using the windows installer: create a base-directory for GenJ – every downloaded archive has to be unzipped into that same directory while preserving directory structure. To start GenJ execute one of the scripts included in the distribution.”. I have run GenealogyJ/GenJ in the past under Mac OS X and it ran just fine.
