Welcome to The Free Family Tree, growing stronger since 2008.
  1. Together we're growing an accurate single family tree using DNA and traditional genealogical sources.
  2. Privacy controls enable us to integrate modern family history.
  3. Extraordinary protections ensure that our shared tree will never be lost.
  4. Everything is 100% free including many benefits for genealogists who sign our Honor Code.
Our tree includes 25,732,446 profiles (7,254,885 with DNA test connections) edited by 771,859 genealogists from around the world.
