  • Cool - was just thinking the other day that I should make a family tree - this seems to do the job... although sometimes the layout goes a bit wonky. – x3ja Jul 5 '10 at 0:57

    This site is so much fun! Good way to make time go by a little faster on a super slow day at work... glad you posted it :) It seems so user friendly my Grandma could do it. – Jessie Jul 5 '10 at 19:27
  • This site appears to allow you to create a family tree and if you subscribe will match to trees created by other users. No obvious facility for researching ancestors. – Swinders Jul 6 '10 at 20:30

    This site allows you to create a family tree but will also let you research various census and other records for ancestors (site states that most historical records used are from between 1790 to 1930) – Swinders Jul 6 '10 at 20:49

This site allows you to create a family tree and also lets you research various census and other records for your ancestors.

If another user has created a tree with people that match your tree then basic details are show in a 'Hot Matches' area. The more elements that match your tree (names, common relations, dates, etc...) the hotter the match.

Genlighten is a really neat site that connects those looking for family history with researchers who actually gather the data for them (sometimes physically, if necessary).
