Facebook is where extended families communicate these days, and everybody loves sharing images. Here are the types of images that are easy to create and share.


Family Trees

Select the "Share on Facebook" link on any Profile Menu, e.g. the pull-down menu at the top of this page that begins with your WikiTree ID, and follow the simple steps.

These are proven conversation starters!

Global Tree Connections

It's also easy to share results from the Connection Finder, accessible from the "Global Connections" link on any Profile Menu.

Relationships and Relationship Trails

You can change the size of the image that's created by changing the size of your browser window. For example, if there is too much white space or the image is too wide, you can make it narrower by clicking the button in the upper-right corner of your browser to adjust the browser window.

Family Group Sheets

Click a "Family Group Sheet" link from any Profile Menu and follow the six steps above.
