ScionPC Download

ScionPC is free, fully-featured, genealogy software with a modern, easy-to-use interface, ideal for both the novice and the experienced genealogist.

Databases from other family tree programs can be imported into ScionPC using its GEDCOM import facility. Just export your data from your old program as a GEDCOM file and then import that file into ScionPC - it's that easy. ScionPC will also directly load databases created with Amiga versions of Scion.

The program has been written in a totally secular manner, has no checking on sex (to allow for "unconventional" relationships), and has no naming constraints (to allow for adopted children). The partners of a family group (or marriage/union) are referred to as "Prime" and "Partner" rather than "Husband & Wife" or "Father & Mother". Either partner can be the Prime.

Free-form notes and sources can be created and viewed, and any files may be attached to any person or family.

Other features include dynamic on-screen ancestor and descendant charts, extensive on-line help, powerful searching and filtering, and an "open" XML database file format. View the full list of program features and some screenshots of the program.

ScionPC will run happily from a USB flash-drive as a "portable" application, and will leave no traces behind on any host computer. Take ScionPC and your database with you wherever you go.

FEATURES:

TE The program's emphasis is on ease-of-use.
TE Written in a totally secular manner.
TE The database is held in memory for quick access.
TE The number of people, families, facts, children, etc are only limited by the amount of available memory.
TE Unlimited partners per person, children per family, and parents per child (biological, adopted, step, foster children, etc.).
TE Has no gender constraints (to allow for "unconventional" relationships).
TE In on-screen displays, people are colour-coded by sex to aid quick differentiation.
TE Supports over 55 types of personal and family facts (events and attributes). User-defined facts are also supported.
TE Event dates can be entered manually or selected from a pop-up calendar. Non-Gregorian calendar types are also supported.
TE By default, date entry dialogs request dates in the DMY (Day/Month/Year) format. This can optionally be changed to MDY (Month/Day/Year) or YMD (Year/Month/Day). Dates are always displayed in "23 Aug 1987" style.
TE Every fact and name can be assigned one of four levels of surety.
TE People, Families, Notes and Sources have a unique ID number that will not change even if the database is edited. User-defined ID numbers for people and families are also supported.
TE Quickly insert "autotext" by typing a shortcut and then pressing F3 in a data entry field.
TE Global search-and-replace for places, names, notes, sources, etc.
TE Global spell-checking for places, names, notes, sources, etc.
TE Most on-screen lists and views can be resized to show as little or as much information as you want.
TE A summary of a person's or family's statistics is shown at the bottom of every page.
TE Shows a person's age at every event.
TE Any person's data can be tagged as "private".
TE Easily handles adoptions, fostering and other family relationships.
TE The validity of a child is rigorously checked as they are added to a family group.
TE Easily handles multiple names for a person such as nick-names, aliases, religious names, etc. Any person's name can be specified as their "preferred name" to be used in displays, reports, etc.
TE The display order (Surname/Given, Given/Surname, etc.) can be defined for every name. This allows for non-European style names.
TE "Name Exceptions" are supported for surnames that should not be fully capitalised. For example, MacDONALD may be preferred over MACDONALD.
TE Enhanced tooltips show a summary of any note or source without opening its record, and quick summaries of personal and family data in some displays. Just hover the mouse pointer over an item.
TE Copy-and-paste people between databases.
