Want to build your family tree?

If you are looking for a fun and easy place to build your family tree, you should check out Geni:

Most genealogy research is just that — research. The countless lonesome hours spent sifting through records, the phone calls to relatives so far removed you're not even sure you can call them relatives ... it's not too much fun. And, more importantly, it doesn't even really involve your family.

That's where Geni comes in, turning family tree development into a collaborative effort. Start off by filling in the immediate information you know, then invite other family members to add to your work. Can't remember your great uncle Frank's second cousin's name? Invite him (or someone close to him) to your tree on Geni, where they can provide the info themselves.

You can also add pictures, videos and profiles for each family member in your tree, include details of important life events and send birthday, anniversary and other event reminders.

Start preserving your family history with Geni today!

And it's free!

What a horror that day was. :( Nobody will ever forget where they were when they heard the news. Many of us watched it live on TV or worse were there in person.

All those innocent lives lost and for what? Because of a madman who wanted to rule the world.
