"I thought I would never find my mother-in-law's line, but I did in the World Family Tree. I used the Contributor Contact Information Service to find out who contributed the information and look forward to talking to them and making more connections. The World Family Tree gave me that missing link I needed."
— Susan, Oklahoma

Share Your Family Tree
Why participate in the World Family Tree? For one thing, when you contribute your tree you give people who share your family history a chance to find you. In genealogy research, it's important not to underestimate the value of researchers working together. You can share notes, photos, leads, and more.

Also, while we encourage you to regularly backup your research, contributing your tree is a convenient way to protect your family data. Each tree will be preserved online and on CD as part of the World Family Tree.
