The Family Pursuit Community Family Tree is a free community-shared, user-contributed family tree. Within our genealogy community, genealogists can easily collaborate and network with others as they share and contribute information.

To facilitate true collaboration, our Community Family Tree is wiki-based. This means each time someone adds or updates information, that information is saved to a change log and nothing is overwritten. If needed, any change can be undone, no matter how long ago a change was made or how many changes have occurred since. As members continuously enter new information and make changes to our Community Tree, they can receive email notifications by adding specific ancestors to a watch list. Our wiki-based system allows our members to collaborate with confidence, freely contributing and discussing facts, relationships, and sources.

Our genealogy community also focuses on building connections between genealogists. Whether distant relatives, or researching common locations or timelines, our desire is to create a community for you to network, share knowledge, and build relationships.

The Family Pursuit Community Family Tree is very easy to use and works similar to many modern genealogy programs. There is nothing to install, so you can begin networking and collaborating immediately.

From our Members

"This last week Family Pursuit Beta 1.0 was launched and I am excited to be among the testers ... The user interface is clean and consistent ... I was interested in how the company would fulfill their promise to "enable genealogy enthusiasts to involve family members who have never engaged in family history work." After spending a few hours using the beta, I think Family Pursuit, LC is on a path of innovation for genealogy software. Those more experienced with family history now have tools available to mentor beginners in the research process and work collaboratively toward a common goal."
