  • Happy Holidays From OneGreatFamily

    We wish everyone a warm and merry Holiday Season and look forward to an exciting new year! We hope you are able to spend the Holidays with family and loved ones . . . and that you make genealogy part of your celebrations. As a special gift to yourself, visit us at and get reacquainted with family members who have come and gone before you. Learn about their lives and traditions to help you discover more about your own.

    With all the holiday gift giving soon to take place (new computers, Internet services, etc.), we expect more visitors will be coming to OneGreatFamily. That means more people will be adding their family trees to OneGreatFamily. With this new information and all the new enhancements that are planned for our service, OneGreatFamily will continue to become bigger and better this coming year.

    All of us here at OneGreatFamily wish you a safe and Happy Holiday!

  • Great Gift Idea - Gift Subscription to OneGreatFamily

    This holiday season, give your loved ones the precious gift of learning more about themselves - by finding out more about their family history. A gift subscription to OneGreatFamily could be the most meaningful present you'll ever give anyone.

    What better gift to give this Holiday Season than the gift of genealogy?

    But what exactly could that gift be? Of course, you could print out a nice family tree or create a special tribute book. These would be cherished by family members. But as someone who does genealogy, you know that the true gift is to get involved in discovering your family's history. Genealogy can be a rewarding lifetime endeavor that enriches not only yourself but others. And genealogy is even more fun when you work together with other family members. Whether collaborating on a hard-to-find ancestor or sharing fun facts you've each identified, working together with family members on your genealogy is a wonderful experience.

    Consider the benefits your friends and family could have with a OneGreatFamily subscription:

    • View the ancestors who have been added to your family tree because of our unique matching and merging process
    • See all of your ancestors who are already part of OneGreatFamily
    • Meet and work with distant family around the world
    • See how you are related to your famous ancestors
    • View unlimited generations of your family tree at one time
    • Make new discoveries over time - new families and information are added daily
    • Access your Family Dashboard, a whole new way to explore your family tree

    Your friends and family members can experience the joys and benefits of collaborating with other genealogists from all over the globe in locating your ancestors and merging your own family tree with the world's first true global family tree - found at A gift subscription will be rewarding long after the holidays are over.

  • Are You Looking For A Meaningful Gift To Give This Holiday Season?

    The Holiday Season and genealogy go hand in hand. Why? The holidays are embodied with the spirit of family and gift giving. And genealogy is a gift to your family members today as well as for future generations. What better gift to give this Holiday season than the gift of genealogy? Nothing could be more important or more meaningful than bringing your family closer.

    This Holiday Season, we want to make it easy for you to give the gift of genealogy. There are two different ways you can share what OneGreatFamily has to offer to those on your Holiday gift list:

    1) Use the feature on Family Dashboard that allows you to share your family tree with others.

    Under the "Information About Your Family Tree" section of Family Dashboard, there is a button "Share this Dashboard"

    When you click on the link, a page will open with a very simple form for you to fill out.

    Once you click 'Submit' the person with whom you are sharing your Family Dashboard will get an email with a link for them to view your Family Dashboard. They can also click on the "View my Family Tree" button and be able to see your family tree in Genealogy BrowserT.

    However, the person will not be able to make any changes to any of your data on Family Dashboard or Genealogy Browser.

    Family Dashboard is the perfect way to get your family members excited about genealogy.  The wide range of widgets and the tight integration with Genealogy BrowserT makes it fun for people to explore.  Imagine your children or siblings experimenting with the Relationship Calculator, or looking for all their ancestors who share their given name or tracing your family's history through the Migration Calculator, or getting a Time Capsule for their own birthday.  Family Dashboard really brings genealogy alive, and now it is so easy to share without worrying about them messing up your valuable work.    

    2. As a member of OneGreatFamily, you can buy gift certificates for your loved ones.

    Please visit: to give those special people on your list a gift that will last the whole year long.

    A gift subscription will be rewarding long after the holidays are over. Imagine collaborating with your family members and building your family tree and preserving it for future generations in 2013.

    A OneGreatFamily Gift Subscription is a gift that will always be remembered.

    What a wonderful time of the year to get your family excited about working on your family tree together.
