Gramps Web is a web app developed by the Gramps community that allows authorized users to collaboratively edit a network Gramps family tree database using the same code base as Gramps Desktop.

See the Gramps Web wiki page (for an overview) or its project website (for detailed user documentation).

Configuring a Gramps Web instance on your own server or hosted service is an EXPERT level task. But there are deployment options using a Docker container and a turnkey "1-click App" offered as a service if you have a (paid) Digital Oceans droplet account.


Gramps Web Sync addon synchronizes the Gramps Web online database with Gramps Desktop from the Tools -> Family Tree Processing submenu. It supports import and export of genealogical data in all formats supported by Gramps.

See the Gramps Web Sync project on GitHub to give feedback.

Reports that build uploadable pages

The Narrated Web Site... creates an entire website of uploadable linked webpages.

Under the Reports -> Web pages -> submenu:

External tools that leverage Gramps XML

  • Betty - static site generator for Gramps XML and GEDCOM family trees by Bart Feenstra

Export to an uploadable format with a web browser

  • GeneWeb format - GenWeb is free, open source genealogy software written in OCaml by Daniel de Rauglaudre running on a lightweight webserver for Unix, Linux, Microsoft Windows and macOS platforms.
  • Web Family Tree format - Web Family Tree genealogy freeware by Peter Moylan (OS/2 webserver based)

Data Scrapers

Data Scrapers poll web sources for importable data. They recognize structured data in one source and crosswalk it to the corresponding data structure in a destination. (The destination could be a file format... Like GEDCOM... or an application... like Gramps.)

Finding Aids

Finding Aids do contextual lookups of structured data in a database in another system. Like might be looking up a person by given name, surname and years of birth/death; or by an archived reference ID.
