myfamily.com, the leading private social networking service for families has announced the launch of its Family Trees application through the integration of Ancestry.com’s family tree service, enabling members to create and share family trees right in their myfamily.com sites.
With this release, myfamily.com members can now create, share, print and publish an online family tree. Users can start a new tree on their site or upload an existing family tree from a GEDCOM file (a standard genealogical file format) to their myfamily.com site. Site members can then work together to add photos, videos, audio stories and other information to each profile on their family tree.
This new feature links myfamily.com users to the wealth of digitally scanned historical documents and family history research tools provided by its sister site Ancestry.com and is the latest in an innovative pipeline of services and features recently added to myfamily.com as a part of an extensive redesign of the site.
