Why use Ahne2Web? Installation guide
WWW is often translated to World Wide Wait.
That waiting happens too often, so Ahne2Web makes pages that download fast.
No ornament, gags or animated pictures.
Ahne2Web makes pages of a reasonable size, so the readers don't need to download another page too often.
The text is shown immediately, so the reader can start reading before downloading is finished.
Ahne2Web displays all persons with 'who, when, what and where':
John Brown (1801 - 1864)
Farmer in Smalltown
This is informative for the readers and lets them identify
They have no use of seeing some John Brown who is not identified with name and years, occupation and place of residence. Without this information noone can tell if he is 'the right one' or not.
Ahne2Web creates a well-arranged hierarchy of pages, each
being simple and easy to grasp.
The number of pages can be adjusted for small or large colletions.
The surname index displays the number of people for each surname, so the reader will not be disappointed when finding only one single Cavaradossi.
The name indexes are simple - not divided into a strange hierarchy of unknown depth.
People are sorted alphabetically, ready for the browsers search function.
No fuss with the single page per family and links between pages as found in our genealogy programs - That's far too slow on the Internet.
The reader will receive the family relations when you send a CEDCOM file.
Index of place names shows persons for each placename. Ahne2Web has many tools for trimming your placenames, and you can limit the list to placenames with many persons.
Ahne2Web creates two formats for the ahnentafel (ancestry table).
The graphical ahnentafel is designed to display up to 8 generations: 255 people on one screen - with name, years, occupation and place for each of them.
So much information in such a small area cannot be found anywhere else.
The simple ahnentafel displays all ancestors by generation, numbered by Kekule von Stradonitz's system. The reader need not waste time on multiplying and dividing numbers by 2 - we have machines for that: Ahne2Web creates links between parents and children. In case of repeated ancestors (due to a cousin-marriage) the common parents are shown at one place only - with links to all the relevant children.
The descendants table (new in version 6) is also graphic and easy to overview.
Ahne2Web creates nice-looking pages - at least according to my
You decide the colours, and if you want more ornament or even bells and whistles, then you can edit the pages in a html-editor.
Of course Ahne2Web is a user-friendly program and easy to
for you are hardly going to use it every day.
The program 'speaks' english, but introduction and User's Guide are available in Danish too.
Translators to other languages are welcome to contact me.
Please no foreign checks: My bank's fees will eat them up.
Your bank will also profit, no matter what way you choose, but there is nothing I can do about that :-(
