The following press release is from dynastree
Free 14-day trial subscription to dynastree’s premium version
Hamburg, July 29, 2009 – The family network dynastree.com just deployed a new version which comes with several new features and improvements, such as better hinting, a variety of PDF-lists of one’s family tree, and the possibility to upload and share documents. Dynastree would like to offer all users the possibility to test the premium subscription with its many additional features, free of charge and with no obligations. Therefore, it is now possible to get a 14-day trial period of the premium services, which can be canceled at any time during the trial period. This gives users the opportunity to test the many additional premium features dynastree offers before actually subscribing. The premium features include full usage of the recently introduced extended search, a premium family page, automatic profile match, and more. The free PDF-files of one’s family tree included in the regular premium subscription are not included in the free trial subscription, but it can be converted to a regular subscription at any time.
It is now possible to create different kinds of lists from the family trees, including a list of ancestors, a list of descendants, a birthday list, and a family list. The lists adhere to official genealogical standards and are numbered following the Kekulé-system (list of ancestors), an internationally accepted system that numbers male descendants with even numbers and female descendants with odd numbers, starting at 1 for the original person. Premium users can create as many lists as they like, at no additional charge.
The new features also include the possibility to upload documents of all kinds, such as genealogical records, letters, certificates, etc. These can be shared with family members also active on dynastree, allowing the users to access such documents remotely.
Furthermore, the hinting on dynastree has been improved. The number of matches for each profile is now displayed for each user, premium users can access the actual matches to find possible relatives and collaborate with them.
