Are you looking for a better way to collaborate your genealogy research with family members?

With Family Pursuit's Family Tree Websites, you can work with your family in real-time through the Internet. This means you have access to every change instantly, without the hassle of emailing or merging. Some of our users work with family members close by, while others work with family members living all over the world. Even in opposite times zones, these families are able to coordinate their research and stay current on new findings.

Our family tree websites are completely private, only the family members you invite can access the website and make changes. Together, you can research and contribute facts, relationships, sources, stories, pictures, and engage in group discussions.

How is Family Pursuit Different?

One important differentiation is the ability to undo and redo any change made in the system at any time, including merges. Nothing is ever lost in Family Pursuit. We also include a notification system, providing a list of updates as other family members add information or make changes. With our research coordination tools, you can organize your work into projects, assign tasks, and keep research logs and extractions. Our websites are very easy to use and do not require any installation or server setup.

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."
