build your digital family tree
Fantastic idea for hobby genealogists:
www.geni.com - Everyone's Related
Just try it out - enter yourself, your father and mother.
You'll soon be hooked. After a little research with my parents and only remaining grandmother, I have now assembled 65 persons in my tree (88 in the extended 'forest') - and I don't have a particularly big family.
Loads of cool features:
- Various tree layouts (horizontal/vertical, number of generations, with or without photos, mark deceased...)
- Tree navigation (zooming, panning)
- Invite relatives by email to view/edit/add to the tree
- Photo albums (incl. tagging of persons in pictures)
- Family stats (blood relatives, inlaws) for each tree member
- Customizable timelines (birth, death, marriage, schooling dates)
- Tree members index by last names
- Tree members list by relation to yourself
(time to check Wikipedia what a first cousin once removed actually is!)
- Show current location or birth place of all family members on map
- Easy-as-pie print function
- Email newsletter with notifications about updates to your tree
