But there’s no need to guess. Use the table below as a guide. It is based on these criteria:
Contact me before you sign up and we can discuss your needs. And don’t worry if you find out later that you need more space. It is very easy to upgrade, and I’m pretty flexible about when it happens too 🙂
The simplest way is usually to export a GEDCOM file from your current site, which I can then import into your new kiwitrees site. Before running the import I always check the integrity of the file and fix any errors I can; then after the import I run webtrees own “error check” to see if there are things that you might need help tidying up.
For more complex transfers it is often easiest to give me access to your current site so I can download it’s raw database. But each transfer is different, so we will probably have a conversation about your specific needs before you sign up.
One thing you must always consider is the cost of maintaining a customised site, as each upgrade of the software is likely to result in costly updates to your customisations as well.
You can see some examples of custom sites at our Customising page
