Ancestor Search

Are you interested in performing a simple ancestor search? Don't have the time or resources you need to devote to genealogy? Now you can learn a lot about your family history with even a small effort on your own part. By teaming up with OneGreatFamily, an online genealogical service, you gain access to a wealth of information about your own family tree and about how you fit into the one great family tree that encompasses all the inhabitants of the Earth. You will be surprised at just how much OneGreatFamily can aid your ancestor search.

The goal of OneGreatFamily is to reconstruct the family tree of the whole Earth. With advanced technology, OneGreatFamily is able to make links between the information provided by all of their members. As members discover new links in their own ancestor search and add these new individuals to their own family tree, the OneGreatFamily search process checks to see if any of those people are your ancestors and notifies you when a match or a possible connection to your own family has been discovered. Whether you're an experienced genealogist or just getting started, OneGreatFamily makes performing an ancestor search easier than ever before, saving you hours of time. Instead of doing just one ancestor search at a time, OneGreatFamily's automated search engine continually performs a search on each individual name within your family tree at the same time, looking for additional ancestors and information related to your family history.

One of the most significant benefits of doing ancestor search through OneGreatFamily is that it brings together the genealogical work of people from all over the world in over 80 countries. Members can search for other genealogists with similar last names and can determine whether or not they share any ancestors. They can collaborate their work, eliminating unnecessarily duplication of current and future research, and help fill in some of the major gaps in each other's genealogy data.
