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 14,717,038 profiles edited by 440,973 genealogists from around the world.

Gail Cox "After three years on WikiTree, it is still amazing to me that I can find such a rich online experience with so many different options ... totally FREE. All that is asked of me is that I be responsible to our community with the information that I'm putting up." — Gail Cox
