Aldfaer is written in Dutch. Via plug-ins you could make it Multi lingual (help file remeans in Dutch). Indepently from the working language, you could make reports in languages different from the working language. Aldfaer has become the standard geneological program in the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg)

Biggest Pro: Easy, multi-lingual via plug-ins, free
Biggest Con: Help file only in Dutch

Aldfaer is a very good programma that has gone through a fair view incarnations by now. It’s probably the best Dutch-language genealogical programma around and has been around a long time. A lot of the improvements in successive versions are under the hood, the programma has generally looked and behaved the same for years. Searching large family files could be improved.

Biggest Pro: It’s free and does reports extremely well, more especially what the programme calls “parenteels”
Biggest Con: With very large family databases (of, say, 15,000 or more), Aldfaer becomes less efficient.

This is the program I started with a couple of years ago, and though I have switched to another program because the source handling isn’t what I wanted it to be, I still use it sometimes for the brilliant reports include in this software. (also in other languages…)

Biggest Pro: reports
Biggest Con: handling of sources

4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

Simple and effective for not too large family trees. When files become larger finding back a specific person becomes difficult

Biggest Pro: No frills
Biggest Con: No merging of files possible
