  • OneGreatFamily Helps Genealogists On A Budget

    Most of us today seem to be constantly strapped for time and money. We all know that searching for our ancestors is really important, but the costs and time involved can seem overwhelming. We at OneGreatFamily can help!

    OneGreatFamily is a service that can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars with your genealogy - not to mention saving you hours and hours of time as well.

    Researching one ancestor alone can take years and cost a lot of money! Now, you can get a start on your genealogy from the comfort of your home. Here are a few costs to consider when researching your family tree:

    • Family Tree Software
    • Travel Expenses
    • Photocopies, Mail, etc.
    • Professional Assistance
    • Backup hardware
    • Data Access on CD-ROM or Online

    Right away, OneGreatFamily saves you money on Family Tree Software. The included, downloadable Genealogy Browser is a full-fledged family tree software package with several unique features that you cannot find anywhere else. Our Family Dashboard, also free, provides powerful analytics to help you identify research needs quickly

    Next, OneGreatFamily saves you money by automatically backing up your family tree to our servers, providing you with the peace of mind that your work is not in jeopardy of being lost from accidents.

    Finally, OneGreatFamily can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars in travel, photocopies, professional assistance and data access fees. With most of us watching where our money goes, keep in mind an annual subscription to OneGreatFamily can cost less than one roundtrip drive to a family history library.

    Here are more examples of how OneGreatFamily saves you money:

    • efficiently eliminates duplicate family trees and relationships by creating ONE FAMILY TREE. Elsewhere, the internet has spawned a data duplication floodgate, which wastes your time as you wade through thousands of duplicate records.
    • provides you with access to the largest collective family tree available.
    • Collaborate with people from all around the world from the comfort of home . . . or wherever you have access to the Internet. Spend some time on OneGreatFamily before you take that trip to your ancestral homeland!
    • Online collaboration can help you save hundreds of dollars on correspondence, photocopies, and other expenses. Documents, photos, and other information can be stored electronically on OneGreatFamily or sent to distant family members you meet on OneGreatFamily via email.
    • Gather as much information as possible on to make sure your money is well spent if you decide to hire a professional researcher for further assistance.
    • OneGreatFamily includes access to MILLIONS OF NAMES; many with corresponding events, sources, notes, photos, biographies, and other supporting data. More data is being added every day.
    Why spend hundreds of hours searching for information that others have already found? Instead of duplicating research that is already done, you can now spend your time conducting new research or simply verifying information others have provided.
