Louis Kessler

Behold Genealogy

Summary Tab
Extended Tab

Louis started his genealogy over 35 years ago, about the same time he started computer programming. His University degrees in Statistics and Computer Science have given Louis a very different and innovative perspective on Genealogy research. Louis spent many years as Chair of the Archives Committee, as a Board Member and then as President of the Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada. He built his website in 1997 and designed and operates the website where people go to review and rate their genealogy software. Louis has given talks on genealogy technology at RootsTech, on genealogy cruises and at other special genealogy events. In 2011, Louis released Version 1 of his own genealogy software Behold, designed to become the world's first report-based data editor for genealogy.

Louis lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada with his wife Cheryl and two daughters. He works full time as the Manager of the Forecasting Department at his province's electric and gas utility company. Genealogy and programming are his after-hour passions.
