Families uses a highly efficient database implementation, allowing very large family files to be supported. Users have successfully displayed and edited files containing over 300,000 individuals.

Families requires a companion program running on the PC to transfer family files to and from the Android device. This program, Families Sync, can be downloaded free of charge from www.telgen.co.uk/families.

A sample family file is included.

This used to be a great compliment to my Legacy software, but after numerous Android updates, it no longer opens and only shows a blank screen. This is a disaster when you are far from your main computer and need the information for researching records. Avoid this app until a new version is available G. Torbeck Update: I seem to have overcome the blank screen problem by doing a reboot. However, the app will not sync with FamiliesSync, over wifi since it only gives a 0000:5020 address. Deleted.

I rarely take the time to write a review...only if I'm extremeley happy with the product or if I'm very dissatisfied. In this case it is the latter. I agree with Linda and Christine. After messing with with the app for about 30 minutes trying to get my Legacy file onto my Android I finally figured out what it was asking me about the file! Once I figured that out, I tried to sync using the USB and everything looked like it was running but it didn't appear on the app on my phone. Then I tried to sync by Wi-Fi. I still can't see the file on my Families app. I don't consider myself an idiot when it comes to technology. Better instructions are needed to walk people through the process. It is not intuitive nor user friendly.

After software update yesterday, Families app would not open, goes to blank screen. Tried to reinstall app, lost 4 other Families files that were large. Only file left is sample Kennedy file! This problem has occurred multiple times!!! 3/16/2022 Tried to use app today. All data files lost. Sometimes getting message "App will be put to sleep as it is unused" even though it is used frequently! Why does this system software put apps to sleep and how do you block this and get app to open again?
