Anonymous editing is closed!

Due to recent legislation in Ukraine, where Rodovid is based, the Administrators decided on 18 August 2010 to require that users log in to edit pages. Anonymous editing is no longer permitted, and will not be in the future unless legal circumstances allow it.

What is Rodovid?

Rodovid's family tree maker is probably the most advanced Web-based technology to date, especially in terms of its ability to generate very large trees containing dozens of generations and thousands of people. It is far beyond the capabilities of any computer-based family tree makers and Web-based technologies from paid websites. There is no need to pay money for creating and sharing your family tree when you have Rodovid!

Rodovid is powered by the MediaWiki content management system (the same used by Wikipedia), so anyone familiar with the system can work on Rodovid easily.

More detailed information about Rodovid is available at the About Rodovid page.

First steps

For new users Rodovid may look quite difficult, but it is based on a strong system.

We advise for first-time visitors to:

  • read Help to learn how to get started
  • test the functionality of Rodovid at the Engine site (and only there, please)
  • Sign up on Rodovid for the usability and functionality benefits of registered users
  • Start your tree—but search carefully for the person you wish to enter first. Rodovid has such a large database that we just might have this person already!

You can always find a tip or ask an administrator for help!


There are several different examples of the way family trees can be created:


Do not enter test data on this database or that of any of the other localizations. If you would like to test Rodovid's functionality, please visit the Rodovid Engine site where you can enter data without any restrictions, checks and verifications -
