What is a FAMILYXS file?

A FAMILYXS file is an encrypted data file created by My Family Tree, a Windows genealogy program that organizes family tree information. It contains family tree data, similar to a .FAMILYX file, but it is encrypted with authenticated 256-bit AES encryption to secure sensitive contents. Examples of information FAMILYXS files contain include personal bios, images, audio, and videos.

Chronoplex Software released My Family Tree in 2010, providing Windows users with a tool for tracking and organizing their ancestry. You can save your family tree information as a FAMILYX file or encrypt it as a FAMILYXS file to secure sensitive information, such as family photos or videos.

Encrypting a family tree as a FAMILYXS file is especially useful when transferring it online, where someone could intercept it. When saving a family tree as a FAMILYXS file, you will be prompted to enter a password, which is required to open the file.
