It can build a bridge by bringing the past and the here and now together finding maybe relatives you didn't know and people liking for the same family it's the best genealogy site if you use the tips and guides it will make it easier


I am certainly finding a lot of records!! Recommend this app to all you family history fanatics!!

Shame it keeps freezing & crashing

Really good program, very easy to use and simple to develop the tree. Shame it just keeps on crashing. Hopefully an update will fix this problem soon, until then I simply can't use it.
