Your own family tree website
« on: Sunday 10 September 17 18:47 BST (UK) »
I posted about this on here a few weeks back and thought it may be worth following up with a bit more information to see if there would be any interest if i offered this as a service...

I created a private website for my parents a number of years ago as they, along with most of my other family do not live locally to me and they loved hearing when i had new information found about our ancestory. This was a password protected website so just gave the log in details to those who would want to view it.

The site had quite a lot of detail, including individual profile pages, census pages, blogs of research and website additions, photos etc.

I have been thinking and could probably offer 3 different packages:

1 - basic - home page introduction, family tree overview with max 1 photo per famioy member (so you can see the connections but not individual personal profile pages), contact page
      《ideal for people who just have basic information just as names and dates and to see everyone connected 》

2 -mid range - as above but also with individual profile pages to contain such information as B,M, D, siblings, personal notes, up to 5 photos (or attachments if wanting scans of bmd certs)
     《Ideal for people more in to the research and documentation of their family 》

3 - full package 1- as above and also more photos attachments per individual page, log in details and lessons so you can add or amend information,  create blogs, add calender which will also notify you of relevant dates such as bmd, anniversaries etc
   - full package 2 - as above but instead of you having control, it will be myself who will dedicate a set amount of hours a month to do the posting and updating and for you.
   《 ideal for people who are continuinly researching and updating their research 》
Obviously this is just first ideas so there is a lot of thinking and tweaking to finalize details, but im just putting feelers out to see what people think + also your suggestions as to what you think would be good for me to include.

Thoughts on this are very much appreciated

Many thanks
