Making Family Tree available online..
« on: Wednesday 10 January 18 21:39 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for advice on making my family tree available one line. We created it on ancestry and legacy, but, now find the cost of maintaining an ancestry subscription prohibitive.  We would like to make it freely available and at little or no cost to us (this does seem to be the sticking point) and presumably once we die , the tree will fall by the wayside as there will be no one to maintain the cost. So I would really appreciate some ideas and advice.

Many thanks

Robin

I have my tree on TribalPages.  I pay a small subscription for some extra features (about 20 a year) but you can also have a completely free tree on the site with an unlimited number of names.

I would definitely look at TribalPages. It is very easy to use.

I use tribal pages too.

Anyone can access it if you give them the account details (password etc).

I find it very good for trees I make for others because they can add anything they want to or amend any errors I make, and vice versa.  :)

Problem with Tribalpages it only allows 500 names for free, then you pay.

I have about 3200 names and up to 9 generations. Presumably if you stop paying (dead) they delete the tree.

I have started a tree on tribal pages, up to over 1700 names so far, free.
I find it easy to use; other family members can access it (handy as they are in England and I am in Australia) and other interested people can contact me if they want to view it.
