Can I upload my family tree if I export the file from my home PC?

Yes. The software we use supports import/export requests of the GEDCOM format, so you can export data from your existing family tree software, be it Internet-based or loaded on to your home P.C., for use on this website.

Can I edit one of the historical projects even though I may be not be related?

Yes. There are only a few of us editing the historical projects at the moment and any more help is very welcome. It's a mammoth task, with lots of exciting stories to learn along the way. The charts look amazing too, when they're full of images and quality data. | view projects


What is a GEDCOM file?

GEDCOM (GEnealogical Data COMmunication) is a specification for exchanging genealogical data between different genealogical systems. Developed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a GEDCOM file, written in plain text, contains genealogical information about individuals and data linking these records together. Most genealogy software manufacturers support import/export requests of the GEDCOM format.


What is RSS?
