Build a Genealogy Web Site

If you have been surfing the web for a while, you may have decided it is time to build your own genealogy web site. A web site is a way to connect with unknown distant cousins and post your family data so that other researchers find you.

One of the best acknowledged ways of using the internet to find out more about your family is to use the Web as a type of bulletin board putting what information you know about your family on it and making it known to the online genealogical community so that unknown relatives can find you.

Build a FREE family tree online at Ancestry for the easiest and quickest way to put your genealogy online. Not only is it free, but you will instantly be added to the Ancestry search engine so others can quickly find you. In addition, Ancestry will match your file to tell you if others have any of the same ancestors and put you in contact.

You can add stories and photos, audio and video.

Or, if you prefer to have a website on your own domain, here are step by step instructions to building your own genealogy website and putting your family tree online.

  • Putting surnames online
    Comparison of the many genealogy programs that are available for little or no cost which will convert your genealogy into web sites even with little or no knowledge of HTML.

  • Adding additional content
    Once you have your family tree online, the next step is to decide what additional content you would like to add to your web site. Learn how to do it.

  • Graphics
    All sorts of genealogy graphics, backgounds, and clip art.

  • Promoting your web page
    Learn how to publicize your website, so others can find it.

The best way to find others researching your family tree is to build a web page so thers can find your family tree. Web pages are like posting a note that the entire world can see. You may be looking for someone else who is researching the same family of 100 years ago. You may be looking for others whose ancestors are from the same town. You may be looking for lost family. Whatever it is you seek, finding others with the same interests, family tree and background can personalize your genealogy as nothing else can. Whatever you are looking for, a web page can be the first step.

It can be that one of the more exciting experiences for a genealogist is to find some one else researching the same family. Not only is there the joy of being introduced on-line to a new cousin, but there is the added benefit of being able to pool your genealogical research. Sometimes that cousin may hold the key to your finding many additional generations or may know just a very small piece needed to finish a perplexing puzzle. Or they may have family pictures, stories, bibles or letters to share or have completed some research on a line that you haven't yet begun. And not only can you pool past research, now it is possible to share future research.
