What you can do at OneGreatFamily

What OneGreatFamily can do for you

Discover what has been done on your family tree already

The OneGreatFamily Tree is a powerful genealogy database that is shared and built by people like you all over the world.

Every single name, date, place, picture, biography and video clip has been submitted by people like you. In fact, the OneGreatFamily Tree started without a single name. Users in over 170 countries have submitted millions of names . . . and we've only just begun!

So what does a "shared" worldwide database mean to you? It means someone else may have already entered dozens or even hundreds of your ancestors!
