Family Website - Help Needed

Posted by anovaguy (My Page) on

We have a family website that I created - my first effort at doing so. It is still under construction but is moving along:

I am looking for a free program that can generate a family tree. Also, any suggestions as to improvements or enhancements to the website?

http://www.tufat.com/script1.htm (not quite free - $5)

http://www.geni.com -- free, though I'm not quite sure how you would embed it in your page. I-frame, maybe?

Your site's pretty decent, but there are sites out there that do all the work for you, like myfamily.com -- and they allow your family to be really involved, by posting content, memories, recipes, etc. It has a family tree built in as well. They have a demo family if you want to check it out.

Thanks for the suggestions and sorry for the belated response - I am out of the country right now.

I will check out the links you provided. Someone else provided me with the geni.com link. The problem like you indicated is one of integrating it into the site. I will look more closely into the option costing $5 which is for all intents and purposes just about free.

Free software now available

I thought I would share this information for anyone looking to create a family tree or website.

Check out Family Tree Legends software which is now available for free.

http://www.familytreelegends.com/

When you are ready to download the software, a free registration number is provided to validate the software.

It is pretty versatile when it comes to putting together family trees.

I used it to create several family trees on our family website
