Get Started on My Family Tree
Present and Preserve My Family Story



It's actually quite easy to get started, and you'll be surprised at what kind of great family legends come up when you just ask. To get rolling, use our form to ask family members a few basic questions.

Where's the best place to start? With yourself of course! Then move on to your parents or other close relatives. Don't be shy about asking questions. Most people will be flattered that you are interested and will enjoy sharing stories about themselves.

Family get-togethers, weddings, and reunions are great places to gather interesting and sometimes humorous information about your family. You can also just pick up the phone and make a quick call.
