Get more genealogy done in 2005 with
OneGreatFamilyBy now many of your
New Year's resolutions may have already been forgotten. Diets are
abandoned, exercise equipment is starting to gather dust again and
many well meant intentions have gone the way of the world. You may
be feeling a little discouraged by now.
But don't despair! We
Did you know that most resolutions fail simply
because they require us to reallocate our time? Setting new goals
means learning how to juggle even more things in our already hectic
schedules. More time exercising means less time at work. More
reading time means less time with the kids. Just resolving to change
won't make old habits and pressures simply go away. So no matter how
lofty our goals and resolutions, we are often dragged back into our
same routines and time constraints and our new interests are
abandoned for another year.
If you're reading this
newsletter, it's a good bet that you resolved to spend more time on
your genealogy in 2005. Are you finding it hard to make that time?
May we suggest that, instead of spending more time, you focus on
being more efficient in your genealogy in this new
That's where OneGreatFamily can be of tremendous help.
OneGreatFamily helps you be much more efficient in your genealogy
efforts. We do this in three ways:
1. OneGreatFamily focuses your attention on both
obvious and probable matches. Instead of forcing you to wade
through mountains of useless records, OneGreatFamily automatically
discards the obvious mismatches. In the case of clear matches, our
system automatically accepts them and marks them for your review
by putting a yellow exclamation mark beside them on your
individual family tree! The probable matches are separately
identified and highlighted for you with a "lightbulb" icon. The
system calls these "hints."And while
OneGreatFamily can make you much more efficient with your time, it
also is efficient with your money. OneGreatFamily is a service that
can help you save money in a whole range of ways— on family tree
software, travel expenses, photocopies, mail, professional
assistance, and data access. The annual subscription is about 21
cents per day! OneGreatFamily does not charge for its genealogy
software program or for our user-submitted data. We only charge for
the unique service that we provide in adding new individuals to your
family tree or showing you where your family tree differs from the
family trees submitted by others.
2. OneGreatFamily does all the
searching for you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year.
Our search system is constantly comparing your entire family tree
against any existing or newly entered data. Think of all the time
you save by not having to enter each name of interest into a
search engine, then adjusting the search criteria to try to get to
a manageable number of results.
3. OneGreatFamily allows
you to leverage the efforts of thousands of other genealogy
enthusiasts. Many individuals spend needless hours, days and weeks
searching for names that others have already found, documented and
recorded into the OneGreatFamily tree. When you use OneGreatFamily
you will be provided those names without any work by you! The only
step that you need to take to get started is to submit any family
names that you may have. Then check back in every once in a while
to see what we've found. Many users see their family trees grow
faster than they ever expected!
So make yourself more
efficient in your genealogy effort this year and make at least one
New Year's Resolution a reality for 2005. Imagine how much of your
genealogy can be completed by this time next year!
Genealogy is more than just names and datesWhen
you research your ancestry, you will find more than just a family
tree. Besides finding the names, dates, and records of your
ancestry, you'll find the stories of your family - the real lives of
people that will give you perspective on your own place in history.
Many people find a great deal of emotional satisfaction in
tracing their ancestry. They also discover that genealogy is a great
way to bring together all the generations of the family.
Everyone can help as you begin to document your family
history. The oldest family members can share memories of the good
old days; these stories become fascinating when younger people
realize the link between their grandparents and more distant
ancestry. Younger children can help do the research by asking
questions. Older children can discover the connections between the
genealogical research and their history and geography lessons.
Your family will find additional benefits as you trace your
lineage. Your shared heritage will come alive when family members
understand how customs from the old country influenced their
present-day lives. Additionally, you can revive old customs to
discover how your relatives lived. Stories from your family history
can add more meaning and joy to family holidays.
your heritage with OneGreatFamily.com. The fastest way to discover
your ancestry is to share in the results of others who are tracing
the same ancestry. You may also be able to share the fruits of your
research with others who are researching the same lines.
OneGreatFamily.com, the original Internet global family tree,
continues searching even while you're asleep. You'll get the
information you want about your ancestry while spending the bulk of
your time doing other important activities.

OneGreatFamily Brings Families TogetherI have to
tell you that I was skeptical about your claims that I could add
generations to my family line when I signed up for the free trial. I
have been working on my genealogy for years and was certain I was
making fair progress on my own.
However, a few hours after
uploading my own GED file, I had added a new family line with
generations of information. Since then, I have been adding data
regularly and am finding new members of my ancestry right and left.
I have a few lines that I have been stuck on for some time, but I am
now hopeful that I will finally be able to crack some of these
mysteries. Thank you for your efforts to bring us all together.
