About the Developer, OneGreatFamily.com
OneGreatFamily.com was founded in 1999 by Alan Eaton. Eaton recently received the "Computing that Serves" Alumni Award from the BYU Computer Science Department. This prestigious award is for "contributions to the field of computer science that make a positive difference in people's lives."
The company's flagship site, www.OneGreatFamily.com, is focused on matching and merging all of the separate family trees created by genealogists into one single unified worldwide family tree. This single family tree removes all duplication while maintaining all differences in conclusions that genealogists draw from the research evidence. Today more than 214,000,000 individuals have been submitted in family trees to OneGreatFamily.com.
The company also publishes AncestorsWaiting.com, an entirely separate web site for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Users of that site can tap into the New FamilySearch database maintained by the LDS Church in order to quickly and easily identify ancestors needing temple work.
