Fun Family Tree

Creative family treeI stumbled onto this delightful family tree in an old pamphlet promoting Kodak photography. Paint a trellis then glue some string “vines” and paper leaves as frames for family photos. With a little pre-planning you could easily build it with room to add more relatives as you discover them.

I knew there was a reason I didn’t toss this publication years ago . . .

WikiTree

WikiTree offers family researchers a free online family tree where researchers can collaborate and build their family tree. There are no archives other than the information members add to their trees. Here’s how it works:

WikiTree is for genealogy collaboration. This happens at two levels.

At the modern level, the collaboration can be private and tightly-controlled. Use WikiTree to collect and organize your personal family history and privately collaborate with family members. If you invite non-genealogist family members they might not move beyond this level.

At a deeper level, we are connecting our personal family histories with a growing worldwide family tree. As we go back in time our collaborations become wider and more public. To keep order, we trust each other to abide by a Wiki Genealogy Honor Code.

It’s possible for all this to happen on one single, shared family tree because every profile has its own Trusted List and privacy setting.
