OneGreatFamily.com is now offering “GenealogyCloud” – a full-featured API providing access to a web-based genealogy system. OneGreatFamily has spent more than 10 years and invested approximately $10 million refining its powerful family tree engine. OneGreatFamily.com provides family history enthusiasts with a genealogy program for building a family tree, storing memories and facts, and extending family tree branches by connecting into research that has already been done by others. This web-based functionality has recently been termed “cloud computing,” meaning that the software being accessed by users is not housed on their own computers but in the “cloud” of the internet.
Ready-Made Family Tree Foundation Available for New Development Ideas
Now, OneGreatFamily is taking cloud computing to the next step by making its functionality available to other developers. “There are literally hundreds of developers who are working on specific genealogy or ‘family relationship’ programs,” said Alan Eaton, founder and CEO of OneGreatFamily.com. “But they have to devote too many resources to creating a basic family tree database before they can even start working on new functionality or a user experience that would make them unique.”
“With GenealogyCloud, they can use our API to automatically generate advanced online family trees and immediately focus their efforts on their desired functionality,” continued Eaton.
Variety of Possible Applications for GenealogyCloud
The API for Genealogy Cloud is accessible using either a REST or SOAP interface. There are many possible uses for GenealogyCloud, ranging from genealogy functions to tracking information for medical purposes to managing information on pedigrees, and more. It is ready to be licensed and used today. Visit www.GenealogyCloud.com to review the documentation and see sample applications.
OneGreatFamily.com, LLC, was founded in 1999 by Alan Eaton with a vision to match and merge all of the separate family trees created by genealogists into one single unified worldwide family tree. More than 196,000,000 individuals have been submitted to www.OneGreatFamily.com and then merged into family trees. OneGreatFamily also publishes Relatively Me, an application for Facebook, and the new GenealogyCloud. The company is privately held, based in Springville, Utah and has approximately 25 employees.
