Family Tree Website

So you have the makings of a family tree with you, your parents and grandparents and it's all on pieces of paper but you're looking to share it with others and present it an easy format. Now all you need is somewhere to display it which brings me to a great website thats FREE: . You can build your tree with ease and update it with photos, dates, events and use features that allow you to make reports and charts.

To start a family tree, click 'Register' and you will be taken to a page where you will need to fill in details such as your name, country and email address as well as a website ID that will become part of your website address. Choose the ID carefully as you will not be able to change this later! Click 'Signup now' and you should be on your way.

You can limit who can view your website by changing the settings on 'privacy' so that guests may only see certain information.

I created my family tree 3 years ago and have been happy with the site, however the site is pretty basic with less features than say In the following posts I'll be telling you about other popular websites where you can not only display family trees but also share information with other researchers.

Have you got a family tree that you want to share with others? Can you suggest a better website than Tribalpages? Please leave a comment.
