Who We Are

GenTech, a division of the National Genealogical Society, facilitates communication among persons interested in genealogy and technology. By presenting national conferences, sponsoring programs with other societies, and publishing white papers based on analyses of problems of common interest to genealogists and technologists, we seek to maximize the movement of knowledge among the members of our constituencies.


GenTech sponsors a variety of projects aimed at facilitating the effective use of technology in genealogy. The organization is well known for having developed the GenTech Genealogical Data Model, which is of use to software developers who write genealogy software.
