The Calendar sub-system of The Family Pack is now a separate library and has been greatly expanded. It will be used to create a new program, HistoryCal. The new project has been moved to its own website at

It is hoped that an alpha version of HistoryCal will be released soon. After that, the new library will be integrated back into The Family Pack.

If you were wondering why there has been little activity on this project, this is why. Once the design and first implementation of HistoryCal is completed, I will be able to devote more time to the next release of TFP.

I am pleased to announce the first release of The Family Pack.

This is a very early (pre-alpha) version that is being released to enable those interested in the project to follow its progress.

The release consists of the following:-

All files include an example database and gedcoms for testing.

The source files include a GNU makefile that has been successfully used on gnu/linux Ubuntu (Unity and Mint) and on Mac OSX (Snow Leopard). Details of the build process is also included. I don't have a lot of experience on these platforms so if there is anyone out there who could assist in creating distributable binaries for them, it would be appreciated.
