Join us in growing The Free Family Tree.

  1. There are many benefits of free membership but every genealogist in our community shares a mission to connect the human family on one free tree.
  2. Modern family history on WikiTree is private. As you go back in time the privacy controls open up.
  3. Collaboration is kept enjoyable and productive through a simple nine-point honor code.
325,540 genealogists from around the world have contributed 11,232,198 people to our shared tree. Search for a name:
