Family trees can be confusing for little minds, and big ones too. Charts help explain relationships to your family and friends.
We are pleased to announce an exciting and engaging new way to display your research:
HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). HTML is how Web pages are built.
Now you can publish Ancestor and Descendant trees directly in HTML,
ready for sending by email, or uploading to a Website.
If you include Facebook,

family member's photo (as in the example at right). The button can be
clicked to instantly link to a Facebook page. What a great way to keep a
family connected! Click to see an example (scroll down).
