    Free Genealogy

    Free genealogy is also at WikiTree and WikiTree has been associating shared DNA with shared ancestry to confirm relationships since 2014. WikiTree can use Y-DNA, X-DNA, mtDNA, and/or atDNA (e.g. Family Finder).

    Ancestral trees show which parent/child relationships in an ancestral line are confirmed (DNA icon with check mark) and these trees can be easily shared:

      I have gotten an invite to join familysearch.org and was wondering if anyone here has joined and if it is worth while to join.Any opinion would be welcome.

      Thank You

        FamilySearch is great. And you can use it without joining.

        You have to join to if you want to save (on their site) documents you find, but not if you just want to print them or save to your own computer. You have to join to create a tree or upload media.

        Some documents that Ancestry tells you about and then says you have to order through Vitalcheck are free at FamilySearch. And they have documents Ancestry doesn't have.

        Plus a lot that they haven't yet put online, you can still get from them the way people always did before the internet came along. Order films and have them sent to your local Family History Center for viewing.

          Also they seem to get information from FindMyPast, like the census information and they link through to FMP so you can see the census pages themselves (it is clear that they are getting the information from FMP as they have the same transcription errors. What I don't know is that if I correct on FMP whether that is sent through to FamilySearch at some point - I'll check some of the corrections in 6 months or so).

          I also believe they are working on a single world family tree but I haven't looked into it yet.
