"If you've been looking for a FREE family tree system that encourages collaboration, then I suggest that you try WikiTree. My opinion is that it's the easiest to use collaborative family tree currently available."
— Blogger Randy Seaver
This free, collaborative project has been growing since 2008. As a community we are creating a single worldwide family tree. As individuals and family members we are connecting the tree with our private family histories.
"It is still amazing to me that I can find such a rich online experience with so many different options available to me... totally FREE. All that is asked of me is that I be responsible to our community with the information that I'm putting up."
Here's how WikiTree works:
- Wiki Genealogists grow our shared tree.
- Modern family history is only shared with trusted family members. As you go back in time the privacy controls open up.
- Collaboration between distant cousins and strangers is kept enjoyable and productive through a simple, nine-point Wiki Genealogist Honor Code.
- There are many personal and family benefits of membership but our common goal is to help create a worldwide family tree that will ultimately make genealogy free and accessible to everyone.
It's all 100% free and designed to be user-friendly for genealogists and their non-genealogist family members.
