Friends, I've decided the time has come to shutdown Gigatrees. I have enjoyed developing the software tools over the last several years, but unfortunately I am not a marketer, so it never gained the support I had hoped it would. I would like to thank all those users who supported me along the way, especially those who made monetary donations. Those donations went a long way to covering the domain registration and hosting service fees. All existing reports, GEDCOM files and database entries will be purged in the coming weeks. Users can also sign in and delete their accounts manually from their Profile page.
I wish everyone the best of luck in their genealogical research, and, of course, in life.

Thank you to those who've contacted me expressing their thanks and disappointment. Several users, I like to call them visionaries, recognize the value and uniqueness of these tools and have asked if it would be possible to publish the code online. Unfortunately, the underworkings of these services are not simple standalone programs, but involve complex handshaking between several servers, databases and programs. The complexity of these services is part of the reason for their uniqueness.
Some users have asked if they can still make a donation. The total donations so far have not yet covered the fees associated with the website, so if you would still like to make a donation, please click HERE.
