The Next Generation (TNG)

  • Link type: Website Generators
  • The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding© (TNG) is a powerful way to manage and display your genealogy data on your own web site, all without generating a single page of static HTML. Instead, your information is stored in MySQL database tables and dynamically displayed in attractive fashion with PHP. If your web server supports MySQL and PHP, you can set up and run TNG with very little effort.

    See for more details.

    In many ways TNG is very similar to the free PhpGedView and WordPress.

    TNG is supported by the Export Gedcom File Plugin.

    Setting the Living Flag

    When importing the Gedcom TNG will try to set the living flags from the dates in the file. To set the Living flags to match those in your ƒh file. There are a couple of utilities available.

    Download and install this query: living record ids for tng.

    Download this zip file fh set living, extract the php script it contains and add to your TNG program folder.

    Once installed call it. It will prompt for the name of the Gedcom and a list of IDs.

    To get the list of IDs run the Query installed earlier and select all the cells and copy to the clipboard and paste into the IDs field.

    When not in use it’s recommended to change the scripts file extension so it won’t run or delete it. You don’t want someone else setting your living IDs.
