GenScriber iconGenScriber 1.2.1

A desktop application for the transcription of census records, church records, birth, marriage ,baptisms, burials, index records etc
GenScriber is an easy-to-use and intuitive multi-platform tool that was designed in order to help you transcribe genealogy document images from census registers, church records and others.

The interface is comprised of several resizable windows within a single main window. A register image can be viewed in the top window while data is input in the bottom window.

The data input area uses a spreadsheet style grid. Most people are familiar with spreadsheets, so this style of input was the obvious way to go. Do not be deceived by the style. GenScriber is not a spreadsheet .
GenScriber is a stable, none volatile data input application, designed for a specific purpose.

The problems associated with using spreadsheets for genealogical data input are well known, and they do not apply here.
All cell inputs are alphanumeric. No assumptions are made about the data type. Dates and values are not automatically modified to some alien value you didn't want.

By default all data input will remain exactly as you entered it. Dates, values and special characters, (like slash, commas and quotes) can all be entered. GenScriber will always treat them as text input.

You can of course use the extended options or built in scripting language to apply special actions to data cells, but even that is limited, and is only active if the user turns it on.

Data files are always csv, and fully transportable to any system.
GenScriber will automatically read csv files with field separators of comma, semicolon, or tab.

Images files may be jpg, png, bmp, tif or gif. Images may be zoomed and rotated.

Main features:

  • No installation needed, will run from flashdrive etc.
  • Intuitive spreadsheet style data input.
  • Split window to allow easy viewing of index images, while transcibing.
  • Easily hide unused columns on large worksheets.
  • Simple template system for coordinators.
  • Optional built-in C like scripting language.
