PhpGedView, like other CMSs, has a user interface that supports data entry; however, in the case of genealogical data, entering data online is very tedious when there are more than a few updates to apply. Until recently, I did the data entry and updating locally using a commercial application called Family Tree Maker. I then exported the updated information to a GEDCOM file and uploaded the file to PhpGedView.
This procedure worked well for me until my recent acquisition of a new desktop PC running Windows Vista. It was no big surprise to find out that my ancient version of Family Tree Maker was not compatible with Vista and I needed to either update it or find an alternative way to do my local genealogy content management.
