Free Genealogy Software

I’m looking for a free program that I can use to create and document fictional family trees. It needs to either be desktop or able to run on Chrome OS. I’d prefer if I was able to give a person multiple partners, more than two parents, and add information about the family members, but these are not necessary.

Genealogytree: no child for a second marriage in the heart of a genealogy tree

I have to describe this tree:

  • Father and Mother had a child Daughter
  • Daughter married Husband
  • Husband married previously Other wife and has Child with Other wife

If I write

child{
  g{Father}
  p{Mother}
  child{
    g{Daughter}
    p{Husband}
    union{
     g{Other wife}
     c{Child}
    }
  }
}

Child is connected to Daughter and Other wife instead to be connected to Husband and Other wife. Can you help me please to give Husband what is Husband‘s?

Software for inter-family genealogy

In my current worldbuilding project, I intend to create a region dominated by a civil war between a number of feuding Houses (upwards of 50 originally) that also share familial ties. Since these relations are expected (and intended) to become highly convoluted, I want to use some method of tracking the relations that is clear, maintainable, and can support an arbitrary number of bloodlines.

Is there any software that can manage and display the genealogical history of multiple families in a single view?

Strange pattern in Math Genealogy

Math Genealogy, https://www.genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/search.php is a funny site which aims at listing all PhD’s in mathematics, with years, place, titles and advisers. Of course it cannot be complete in any sense. But here is a strange thing that I discovered: numbers of PhD by country in each century (the countries are assigned there according to the modern political map).

17 century: Germany 250, Netherlands 85, Switerland 23, Italy 16, England 15, France 13.

18 century: Germany 317, Netherlands 122, England 24, France 14, Switzerland 8, Italy 7, Austria 7.

19 century: Germany 1563, Netherlands 214, USA 214, France 71, Austria 66, Switzerland 54, England 37, Italy 35.

What conclusions can one make from this statistics? That most of mathematics (by far!) in 17-19 century was done in Germany? That Germans (and Dutch) are more likely to report the data then French or British? That Germans and Dutch are better in keeping historical records? Or what?

Which Tobit 1:1 genealogy is closer to the original?

What did the genealogy look like in the original version of Tobit? Did it look like the one in Vaticanus, or like the one in Sinaiticus, or neither?

Tobit 1:1:

  • Codex Vaticanus B —

    ΒΙΒΛΟΣ ΛΟΓΩΝ ΤΩΒΕΙΤ ΤΟΥ ΤΩΒΙΗΛ ΤΟΥ ΑΝΑΝΙΗΛ ΤΟΥ ΑΔΟΥΗΛ ΤΟΥ ΓΑΒΑΗΛ ΕΚ
    ΤΟΥ ΣΠΕΡΜΑΤΟΣ ΑΣΙΗΛ ΕΚ ΤΗΣ ΦΥΛΗΣ ΝΕΦΘΑΛΕΙΜ

    My translation: Book of words of Tobit of Tobiel of Ananiel of Adouel of Gabael, out of the seed of Asiel, out of the tribe of Nephtali.

  • Codex Sinaiticus א —

    ΒΙΒΛΟΣ ΛΟΓΩΝ ΤΟΒΕΙΘ ΤΟΥ ΤΩΒΙΕΛ ΤΟΥ ΑΝΑΝΙΗΛ ΤΟΥ ΑΔΟΥΗΛ ΤΟΥ ΓΑΒΑΗΛ ΤΟΥ ΡΑΦΑΗΛ ΤΟΥ ΡΑΓΟΥΗΛ ΕΚ ΤΟΥ ΣΠΕΡΜΑΤΟΣ ΑΣΙΗΛ ΕΚ ΦΥΛΗΣ ΝΕΦΘΑΛΕΙΜ

    My translation: Book of words of Tobit of Tobiel of Ananiel of Adouel of Gabael of Raphael of Ragouel, out of the seed of Asiel, out of the tribe of Nephtali.

The one in Sinaiticus is longer, as it mentions 2 extra names. I’m not concerned with the spelling differences in Tobit’s name or the absence/presence of the definite article before φυλης, as these minor details seem to be more indicative of translation style/preference and probably doesn’t give us much insight into the original Hebrew or Aramaic.
