 FHC Version of GENViewer
MudCreek Software has produced a special FREE version of GENViewer version 1 to be used in Family History Centers (FHC) run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  This is to be used on the FHC computers and is NOT for the general public. Instead, please try the regular version of GENViewer. This is a 15-day evaluation version and still requires a license to work after 15 days. FHCs can request a free license. 

If you are a FHC director or a volunteer at a FHC, you can request a free license for this special version of GENViewer by sending an email to You must indicate the name of the FHC that you are requesting GENViewer for.
