  •  What's New?: Welcome to Family History Month

    OneGreatFamily to Celebrate Family History Month

    October is Family History Month, a month to celebrate our ancestors and the stories of our families. OneGreatFamily wants to help you make the most of this month. Get started by submitting or creating your family tree on OneGreatFamily.

    OneGreatFamily will then match against nearly 80 million names that have already been submitted to our service. When a match is found, your family tree will be merged with others and become part of the larger OneGreatFamily database.

    If you have already submitted your family tree, now is the time to see if your family tree has grown, to verify new information that has been made available through OneGreatFamily, or to add more ancestors to your family tree to provide more potential connections for others.

    Look for some key enhancements this month that will improve your experience on OneGreatFamily as well. If you haven't had a chance, you may also consider inviting others who are interested in genealogy to become part of your experience at OneGreatFamily.

     Q&A: OneGreatFamily's Commitment

    Why should I trust OneGreatFamily with my genealogy?

    Trust is an important concept whenever you provide any information to any commercial entity. Trust is often more difficult to earn for companies that do online business. Some considerations include how your information will be used and the business model of the company receiving your information.

    When researching your family tree, another consideration is the health of the company with which you are sharing your information. You want to ensure that your information will always be available and that you will have continued access to your genealogy data for years to come.

    OneGreatFamily always provides you with access to any information you submit to OneGreatFamily, even if you discontinue subscribing to the service.

    OneGreatFamily will never sell your information on CD-ROM or prevent you from updating your family tree at your convenience. As explained in previous articles, OneGreatFamily sells access to a Genealogy System rather than selling genealogical data.

    Finally, OneGreatFamily continues to make improvements to its online service and to the overall health of the company. OneGreatFamily is one of the success stories of online subscription services. With a growing subscription base, the company has created a solid foundation on which it will build for years to come.
