Launch of Family Tree Builder on FindMyPast.ie

The following is from FindMyPast.

·         First Irish family history website to offer web-based family tree software
·         Allows user to fully benefit from access to almost 10 million records

Today, findmypast.ie becomes the first Irish family history website to offer its users family tree builder software, greatly enhancing its offering to Irish family history enthusiasts.

One of the most important elements in researching your family history is the ability to form a visual representation of your years of hard work and research. Findmypast.ie’s free online application allows users to easily create a tree from scratch and add some of 10 million records now available on findmypast.ie to their existing research.

When compared to using traditional software findmypast.ie’s web-based program presents many advantages such as allowing users to access the latest version of their family tree from any computer and share their family tree with invited members of their family or fellow researchers. Some of the main features of the software include:

·         Add, edit, update and delete relations
·         Add partners, parents and children
·         View your immediate family, ancestors, descendants or whole family tree

This is merely the first step in findmypast.ie’s development of a fully integrated family tree program on which users will be able to store photos and historical references, helping to preserve the story of their ancestors. Future features will also include greatly enhanced social functionality, such as the ability to search other users’ trees and inviting other users to collaborate on a tree. 

Cliona Weldon, General Manager of findmypast.ie, comments: “Our family tree building software is equally adept at helping the novice family historian and experienced genealogist alike to store all the names on their family tree in one place. We’ve made the web based program as easy to use as possible and most importantly its free.”

Findmypast.ie is the world’s most comprehensive Irish family history website, providing easy-to-search, online access to some of the most significant Irish records that have ever been made available. This new site is a joint venture between two experts in the field: findmypast.co.uk, one of the leading family history websites and part of the brightsolid family, while Eneclann is an award-winning Trinity College Campus Company specialising in genealogical and historical research and the publication of historical records.

Based in Dublin, findmypast.ie has a dedicated team committed to providing the best experience possible when researching Irish family history.
