This section makes it possible for you to download onto your computer a complete version of the Legassick database so that you can examine the data, play with it, make printouts and more!  When you click on the link below a file will be downloaded to your computer.  You will be prompted and asked if you want to RUN or SAVE the file.  I recommend that you SAVE the file.  If you do, it will save a copy on your computer and then you will then be given the opportunity to RUN it-- which is what you want to do.


To get you started... click on the binoculars in the icon tab at the top (this is the Advanced Tag feature).  Advanced Tag opens then enter your name and watch GenViewer pull up your record from the database (assuming you are in it!).  Note that you also set the search order-- Name/Surname OR Surname/Name.

About GenViewer:

The file that is downloaded has 2 components; first it has the GenViewer program and secondly it has the Legassick database.  The more you play with GenViewer the more effective you will be using it.  You can go to the website: for more information on GenViewer.


About the Database:

PLEASE NOTE that the Legassick Family Database is an ongoing project and is updated often-- usually once or twice a month.  When the database is updated a new version of the GenViewer will also be published to the website.  The point here is that depending on your interests you may want to insure that you check to make sure that you have the most recent update.
