For most of our ancestors we know only names, dates, and places of important events. OneGreatFamily has created a way to expand your knowledge of your ancestors life. When you login to OneGreatFamily and come to the Family Dashboard page, click on the "Family Tree" tab:

A pedigree chart showing 3 generations will be shown on the page. You can also select a different anchor by clicking on the "Change Anchor" link under the tab.

If you click "Edit" on any ancestor, a box will pop up:

The gray "Did you Know?" sidebar will give you several very interesting facts about your ancestor and what life was like while they were alive.
Information will include:

  • Popularity of their name
  • Worldwide events that occurred on their birthday and death date
  • Famous people born on their birthday and death date
  • Average cost of gas, home, car, milk, income, etc. the year they were born and also the year they died
  • Entertainment news (movies, music, sports, etc.)
  • And much more!
We hope by providing this information it will help you to see what life was like for your ancestor. The more we can learn about our ancestors the more connected we will feel to them. Explore the "Did You Know?" sidebar today to learn more about your ancestors.
