Join The Free Family Tree, growing since 2008.
  1. We are a community of genealogists working together to grow an accurate single family tree using DNA and traditional genealogical sources.
  2. Modern family history is private. As you go back in time the privacy controls open up.
  3. Everything on WikiTree is free including many benefits for genealogists who embrace our 9-Point Honor Code.
Our shared tree includes 14,725,367 profiles edited by 441,319 genealogists from around the world.
