I'm not aware of any SharePoint web parts that are designed to display family trees. There are plenty of treeview controls, but a family tree has a slightly different structure.

You can convert your GEDCOM files to XML however, so may be able to use existing web parts to display them. You can then customize the XSLT to make the display more attractive/usable. It sounds like a lot of work though.

There are web-based applications for managing family trees. If you are familiar with PHP and setting up web sites, have a look at The Next Generation site (http://lythgoes.net/genealogy/software.php)

Hope this helps.
