Genota is a multifaceted software application specifically designed to facilitate  the collection and organisation of what seems to be the endless array of information collected by family historians and genealogists alike during their research, whether it be in electronic form or transcribed from archive resources, letters, e-mail, etc.


It is designed around a collection of user defined Notebooks (databases) ,all sharing a common Address Book, Category manager and Source manager. The deluxe version also includes Genota Forms (also available separately).
