The TNG Wiki is a community effort to organize information on the The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding© (TNG) written by Darrin Lythgoe. TNG is a licensed web application suitable for inclusion on small, non-commercial websites, and is powerful way to manage and display your family tree on your own website, without generating any static HTML. Instead, your information is stored in a database and the pages are created on demand using PHP and MySQL, so new information added to your website is immediately available.

While TNG is a licensed software product, the software owner allows TNG users to customize the code which several experience users have shared with the community as TNG Mods

New TNG Wiki Users

New TNG Wiki users should read the New TNG Wiki Users article to learn how the TNG Wiki is organized using categories and how to create / update wiki articles
