OneGreatFamily is truly a powerful genealogy
service that provides unique benefits to those who
OneGreatFamily is unique from all other
genealogical services available today. Other
online family tree collections are just
collections of trees. Each user works on his or
her individual tree, manually searching all the
other trees in the collection to try to find
ancestors. Some services actually try to go a step
further by finding and cross linking all the other
trees that contain a common ancestor. This makes
it easier for you to manually compare the trees
that have that ancestor in them.
end, you are left with the enormous task of
reviewing all your ancestors individually in all
the other trees. You must then decide which
ancestors to bring into your individual family
tree and which ones to leave
However, OneGreatFamily is
very different from all other genealogy services.
Here is what makes OneGreatFamily unique:
1. OneGreatFamily automatically merges
two family trees together into one when it finds
the exact same person in both. You can
then zoom-in and see the information added. The
separate work of several submitters is often
chained together creating a massive family tree.
Users who tie into the core of our family tree
through a match often gain hundreds, thousands, or
tens of thousands of ancestors.
2. OneGreatFamily identifies and
eliminates all duplicated data within our family
tree automatically through our exclusive
technology. This saves you a lot of time,
while also making it easier to research your
family tree by condensing hundreds or thousands of
duplicates down to a single record.
3. OneGreatFamily searches 24-hours a
day for you, comparing every person you’ve added
against everybody else in the tree to see if they
are the same person. Whether you add 5,
500 or 5,000 names, including all names uploaded
in a GEDCOM, OneGreatFamily will do all the search
work for you. This saves you the time and effort
of conducting these searches manually.
OneGreatFamily often finds information for people
or family lines you aren’t even researching right
4. OneGreatFamily searches for your
ancestors, utilizing our patent-pending Genealogy
Handprint™ technology. We have discovered
that, just as a fingerprint is a unique identifier
for a person, a genealogy "handprint", as we call
it, is also a unique genealogical identifier. This
special handprint is made up of a person and their
immediate family connections. Handprint matching
is far more accurate than manual searching on just
names, dates, and places. It also makes it more
likely you will find additional ancestors.
5. OneGreatFamily preserves everybody's
unique view of our universal family tree.
When there are differences of opinion,
OneGreatFamily maintains all those differences,
and allowing each person to see each version and
choose the one he or she determines to be correct
for their personal family tree. Your data is safe
with us. Nobody can change your view of the tree
without your consent, but everyone can see your
version, collaborate with you to find out why you
think your version is right, and accept your view
if they choose to.
6. OneGreatFamily automatically
identifies those places in your family tree where
other people have information different from yours
and helps you zoom in and resolve those
differences quickly and easily.
Collaboration is built right into the system to
help resolve differences. Genealogy is less
effective when done in isolation. At
OneGreatFamily, you are always working in a
collaborative environment. You can easily see,
collaborate with, and gain the benefit of the work
