Tracing your ancestors may be a fascinating hobby, but I don't see that Progen has much to add to it.

Progen allows you to record the family relationships of up to thirty people from five generations, using a tree diagram. Details of names, place of birth and so on are then entered on to "family group sheets" which can be printed out. Details of children are listed separately. Using the Seed and Root commands you can then produce different charts of relationships.

A worthy effort, but since ProGen can't tell you any information you haven't entered into it in the first place, it's ultimately a bit of a waste of time.

A good idea, poorly executed. This genealogy program could be called relatively disappointing.
