     Q&A: Start off the New Year with a Bang!

    How do I start my genealogy experience with OneGreatFamily?

    by Chelsea Beattie - Marketing Manager

    Most of us are already starting to make our New Year's resolutions. Make starting your genealogy one of your top New Year's resolutions to accomplish! Genealogy is now an easy task to get started on, especially when using OneGreatFamily.

    OneGreatFamily wants to help you learn how to do genealogy the right way. The best way to do genealogy is the OneGreatFamily way! Many times individuals spend hours and hours searching for names that others have already found. When you use OneGreatFamily you can find names that have been automatically placed into your family tree without any work done by you! The only step that you need to make to get started is submitting any family names that you may have. Once those names are submitted you'll see your family tree grow faster than you even expected!

    With the holidays behind us, most of us are a little concerned about spending the little money we have left after buying gift after gift. OneGreatFamily is a service that can help you save money getting started with your genealogy. It's a smart idea to try OneGreatFamily before you travel all over the world or pay someone else to research your family tree. You can save money on family tree software, travel expenses, photocopies, mail, professional assistance, and data access. The annual prescription is less than $6.25 per month. OneGreatFamily does not charge for its Genealogy Browser Software or user-submitted data. We only charge for the unique functionality that we provide, such as adding new individuals to your family tree or showing you where your family tree differs from the family trees submitted by others.

    So make it a goal this year to start and maybe finish your genealogy! Imagine having your genealogy completed by this time next year!

     Technical Support: Quick Start

    We have made getting started even easier!

    by Ryan Long-Technical Support

    OneGreatFamily is reaching out to those who are new to genealogy or OneGreatFamily to make getting started easier than ever. OneGreatFamily recently released a Family Tree Creation Wizard that helps people enter the first three generations of their family tree before registering as a member of OneGreatFamily.

    This new form also allows those who have GEDCOM files to submit their family trees at the time of registration. Their family trees are then waiting for them when the registration process is completed.

    The new Family Tree Creation Wizard will help get more people started using OneGreatFamily and increase the number of records available for merging and matching.
