How OneGreatFamily.com Works
OneGreatFamily.com is a leading site for genealogy enthusiasts who want to use research completed by others as a tool for finding new leads or verifying family tree information they’ve already found. Users of the site have the opportunity to connect with others tracing the same family lines to collaborate on research.
A user starts by entering a family tree at OneGreatFamily.com (either manually or by uploading a GEDCOM file). The site immediately goes to work comparing the full handprint of that user’s data against more than 200,000,000 names already entered in other family trees, and continues comparing against all new data added daily. When a match is identified, the trees are connected, and both users extend their own family trees. They also have the ability to contact and collaborate with someone else working on the exact same family history research. If discrepancies exist between the two sets of data, each user’s view is preserved, so that each sees their own information until the discrepancy is resolved and the user makes a change.
