Ancestry.com has announced that it has created an iPhone family tree application called Tree to Go, which can allow you to carry your tree on your mobile phone (i.e. an iPhone or iPod Touch with version 2.0 or later).
The following is from the Ancestry.com blog at http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2010/01/19/new-ancestry-com-iphone-application-gives-access-to-your-tree-on-the-go/:
Whether you’re scouring the research library or getting together to share family stories with relatives, you’ll never miss a chance to add to your Ancestry.com family tree with this handy app. Log in to your Ancestry.com account from anywhere to access your tree, edit information, upload photos — even add a long-lost family member you find on your way. You never know where or when you’ll discover something to help you grow your Ancestry.com family tree.
With this helpful mobile tree tool, you can see all the family trees you’ve already created on Ancestry.com. Just download the app to your iPhone or iPod® Touch, log in to your Ancestry.com account and choose a family tree.
- You can browse names in your tree
- Search for a specific person in your tree
- Click on a relative to view, then edit or add vital information, immediate family members, life events, notes or new ancestors.
- Take photos of your relatives, historical documents, keepsakes, buildings and more and upload them directly to your tree.
Just discovered a treasure trove of family heirlooms at your second cousin’s house? Take pictures and upload them to your tree with stories about each one. Found a forgotten family member’s headstone as you traverse an 18th century cemetery? Add this new person and upload an image of their gravesite. Now when you’re on the go, your family tree — and all your history — goes with you.
