Genealogy Research

100 years ago, even 5 years ago, family genealogy was a time-consuming hobby - a hobby only for the patient and the long-suffering. Today genealogy is fun-- not tedious. With the advent of the internet and large-scale databases, such as the one provided by OneGreatFamily, family searchers can quickly discover genealogical connections, and clearly see their family-tree progression.

And travel? Traveling just to do research is no longer necessary. With an internet connection and OneGreatFamily, family searchers can virtually travel the world in minutes finding information made available from over 80 countries anytime of the day or night. (See the OneGreatFamily 7-day trial).

For the Beginning Genealogy Researcher

For those new to genealogy, getting started on your family search is now easier than ever with the help of Using their user-friendly interface, it is easy for beginners to enter the information that they know about their genealogy (even if it is only a last name.) OneGreatFamily's system automatically takes that information and then continually searches the database to find and provide you with new family tree names, new updates, and information. It notifies you of updates via email.

For the Advanced Genealogy Researcher

Sometimes veteran genealogy enthusiasts feel as if they have run into a brick wall. Their family trees are extensive, and the farther back a family tree goes, the more difficult it is to make connections and research names. In a revolutionary and time saving way OneGreatFamily connects its members with other family searchers who share their own genealogy and helps to fill in those frustrating ?genealogical gaps.' OneGreatFamily members have the chance to turn their family genealogy projects into large-scale family searches.
