Family tree programs

We have put together several links to websites and programs that will help you build your family tree and share it on-line with family, friends, and others searching for relatives!
  • My Heritage

    My Heritage will let you input family details, add photos, create and print family trees and charts, and more. If you need additional space, they have a version you can pay for with more resources.

  • Geni

    Geni specializes in allowing you to work collaboratively with friends and family to create a family tree, expand it and make it as complete as possible. Geni is completely free. This website also allows you to post questions to a blog and work with others on strategies to find lost relatives.

  • FamilySearch

    FamilySearch is a historic society that has been preserving and sharing records for over 100 years and is run by volunteers and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If you have records on microfilm/fische they will help you convert them, upload them, and preserve them. In addition they have a 24/7 phone service for questions.


    One of the most well known genealogy sites, has access to billions of records and will allow you to build, share and collaborate on a family tree. Creating a family tree on the site is free however using most of their resources requires a paid subscription.
