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

    Join to create your family tree while saving time, money and effort.

    by Chelsea Beattie - Marketing Manager

    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 hundreds or even thousands of dollars 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.

    Researching one ancestor alone can take years and cost hundreds of dollars! Now, you can get a start on your genealogy from the comfort of home. Here are a few costs to consider when researching your family tree:
    • Family Tree Software ($20-$120)
    • Travel Expenses ($$$)
    • Photocopies, Mail, etc.
    • Professional Assistance
    • Data Access on CD-ROM or Online doesn't replace any of these costs, but it can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars getting you started. Remember than an annual subscription to OneGreatFamily has an effective cost of only $6.25 per month!

    Here are a few examples of how OneGreatFamily saves you money:

    • efficiently reduces duplicate family trees and relationships by creating ONE FAMILY TREE. You don't need to spend hours weighing evidence to determine if duplicate entries really are the same person.
    • provides you with two valuable services - family tree software and access to the largest family tree available - for one low price.
    • Access data and 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 added daily. Don't waste time and money sifting through billions of names to find your ancestors before you see what information is available for YOUR ANCESTORS on
    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.

    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.

    Don't waste any more time or money! Take advantage of our amazing service today!
