The Single Family Tree

Just some rough notes.


  • single family tree
  • worldwide family tree
  • universal family tree
  • one family tree
  • shared family tree
  • collaborative family tree

WikiTree is growing a single family tree, one tree that connects us all, as opposed to our own separate trees.

It has sometimes been described a family forest, and in some ways that is more accurate. But "family tree" is a metaphor and shouldn't be taken too literally anyway.

It's where genealogist work together.

Isn't connecting everyone impossible?

Absolutely. The mission to connect everyone on a single family tree is impossible. We will never have a profile for everyone who ever lived.

In fact, connecting as many people as possible is not our focus. We want accurate, valuable information
