"I think that GenSmarts is the best genealogy add-on software available on the market today …"

Kellie Robinson
Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter

"… after 20 years in the business of genealogy, I think I've come across the program we've all been waiting for … we always wondered when someone would produce a program that would check our database and tell us where to look for additional data. Well, the time has come … I'm so excited about this program that I may not sleep much tonight!"

Leland Meitzler, Publisher
Heritage Quest Magazine

"I've been waiting for years for someone to apply artificial intelligence to genealogy and now, it's finally happened! … And here's one of the features I love: if a resource is available online, you can simply double click the entry … (GenSmarts) will take you to the site that contains the information, automatically enter the name of interest … and give you the results"

Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak
Ancestry Daily News

"It's like having your own virtual research assistant … how does GenSmarts stand up to real-life use? Flawlessly … amazingly easy and convenient … in less than five seconds, the program generated my To Do List"

Nancy Hendrickson

Product Description

GenSmarts is a utility that will analyze your TMG project file and apply a sort of artificial intelligence to advise you about which record to research, where, and why. It finds holes in your data and can do automatic lookups for you on free internet search sites.

GenSmarts Finds Clues That You Missed

Are there research techniques you've missed or neglected? Here's an example: You're probably aware that the 1880 U.S. census asked for the birthplace of a person's parents. Suppose you have an ancestor born in 1780 and his son, in your direct line, was born in 1800. Since both the father and son died prior to 1850, you might not think about the 1880 census for this family. BUT WAIT … this son had a younger brother, born in 1815, who might still be alive in 1880 and could give you the birth location of your 1780 ancestor. GenSmarts applies complex research logic like this to identify new research opportunities!

GenSmarts Explores Neglected Family Lines

How many people do you have documented in your file? 1000? 10,000? 200,000? How do you manage to keep track of all that data? Do you fall into the trap of spending too much time in a favorite/familiar part of your tree? When's the last time you went through each person and looked for new research ideas? How long would that take you? GenSmarts can cover your entire tree in seconds and point out areas that deserve more attention.

GenSmarts Puts Untapped Resources To Work

Have you under-used some online research sites because they're just too hard to use? That's what our customers tell us — GenSmarts has rekindled their interest in sites they could never figure out or were too slow. GenSmarts can navigate the search screens and fill in the forms for you with just one click.

GenSmarts Keeps You Current

Are you up to speed on the latest online research opportunities? GenSmarts stays current with new sites as they become available. And instead of just informing you of the site, GenSmarts tells you why you care — which of your ancestors you should be searching for there. And … it gives you a link so you can do that search in a single click.


Although GenSmarts has its strongest emphasis on U.S. resources, its research suggestions have been expanded to consider more than a thousand additional record types and locations, which include Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and other countries. For details about the international records inventory, click here.


GenSmarts works with all versions of Microsoft Windows (95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP). The trial version never expires. The registered version adds a few features, more research sites, and makes more recommendations.
