SIL's dedication to language development past and present
SILKin is software designed to facilitate collection, analysis, and reporting of kinship terminologies. The program graphically displays genealogical structures and intelligently supports development of term definitions.
Version 2.0 has all of the features requested by SIL field workers to date. But it has been used and tested by only a few people. It should be considered a 'Beta Test' release. We encourage you to download and use SILKin and to report bugs or problems to the developer via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
