At OneGreatFamily You Can View Your Family Tree From Your Own Perspective
OneGreatFamily allows each member to view the human family tree from his or her perspective. Most importantly, users are able to see one another’s unique perspective.
This is accomplished in OneGreatFamily through “Groups”. Each group has its own unique perspective of the family tree. If two people from different groups look at the same person in OneGreatFamily, they may view things quite differently, depending on what has been verified and accepted within each group. For example, one group may only have three children listed for someone, while another group has found and accepted five children for the same individual.
Groups (or unique perspectives) are the key to the strength of OneGreatFamily. By preserving all discrepancies and variations in its family tree, Groups allow us all to work on the same tree at the same time without having to agree 100% of the time on everything. In other systems without Groups, endless one-upmanship cycles play out where one user changes the family to 5 children, then the other comes along and changes it back to 3. Back and forth they go, because we all know sometimes even experienced genealogists have debates over the evidence. In OneGreatFamily, this never happens because each will see the tree the way they accept it at the same time.
The strength of groups comes from the ability of any group member to allow any other OneGreatFamily user to join his or her group. So if I join a group that includes my sister-in-law, I can continue to look at the family tree through my own group, or I can look at it through her group.
This means that members have the ability to collaborate with others from around the world who are also viewing OneGreatFamily’s family tree information from their own perspective. Users have access to view the arrangement of other members’ genealogical information right from their own computer!
OneGreatFamily lets each group view the information the way they prefer and lets each group know when conflicts occur with information provided by other groups. You may delete information others have in their family trees from your group, but the others in the group will still see their information the next time they visit OneGreatFamily.
However, OneGreatFamily is far more than just a shared family tree! OneGreatFamily employs proprietary technology to match and merge family trees, a process that allows further collaboration and saves time and effort by reducing duplication.
OneGreatFamily is a genealogy architecture, database, and software program all combined into one service. Don’t miss out on the extended features that make it the superior genealogy product on the market.
