For ease of use, just download the top, short GEDCOM file.

This short file has exactly the same genealogy as the other files: the people are the same, the dates are the same, the places are the same. The only difference is that the large GEDCOM file, and the Reunion file, have more biographical information for only 1107 out of the just over 26,000 people in all files.

File Type GEDCOM
Content File Size
GEDCOM 5.5 Limited bio for
1107 people 3.6 Mbyte
GEDCOM 5.5 Fuller bio for
the 1107 people 7.9 Mbyte
Reunion v.9 (Mac) -- Has all facts
and flags 11.0 Mbyte
WWW files -- Limited bio for
the 1107 people 50.1 Mbyte

All these files have been ZIPPED so you will need an unzip program to extract them. PC users can try WinZip. RISCOS users can try Spark. Macs with OS 10.4 already have an unzip program.

I have added in zips of my Reunion file and the WWW files as it occurred to me that some might like to use them:

  • With the Reunion file, just unzip it and then double click on the resulting file. Reunion (if you have it on your Mac) should then just start up.
    The Reunion file has in it all the extra classification data, the flags, that make it so easy to sort and identify different groups of people; for instance the regicides, the excommunicated, the clergy, etc. The file is over 45 Mbyte when unzipped. Note that it only runs on Reunion v.9 on a Macintosh.

  • The WWW files should work on all computers that have any form of browser on them. Just:
      1. Unzip and put the 'pl_tree' folder/directory in a convenient place,
      2. Open the 'pl-tree' folder/directory and then
      3. Double click on the wc_toc/htm file and it will start up.
      The WWW files are highly portable and are what I use on my completely non-PC machine for quick references. But they need a fair amount of disc space once unzipped and some file systems do not like the thousands (40,000 odd) of small files.
