Looks like a good way of displaying your family tree

Originally posted on Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter:

This is somewhat like playing space invaders in your family tree.

Let’s face it: displaying a family tree to other people, probably relatives, has never been easy. If everything is printed on paper, jumping from one page to another as you flip through the generations can be very confusing for the person trying to understand the relationships. Large paper is a big help but not everyone has a printing device that will fill a piece of paper that is as large as a wall.

Many of us use computers for storing our data but displaying it to others often is a “herky-jerky” motion as we click on link after link, jumping through generations. Did you ever try to show a non-genealogist relative ten generations of his or her ancestry, including cousins? Within a couple of minutes, that person’s eyes probably looked dazed.

What is needed is the electronic equivalent of…

Yet somewhere else to share your family history, which will disappear once you stop paying

I took a brief look at this web site this morning and it looks good. It is new so it doesn’t yet have a lot of information but it certainly shows promise. The following announcement was written by the folks at Twile:

New Website Lets Family Historians Share What They Find

Twile aims to make Genealogy more engaging for the whole family

Sheffield, UK, June 2, 2015 – Twile (www.twile.com) allows family historians to create rich, visual timelines of their family history, made up of milestones and photos from their ancestors’ lives. Genealogy services, like MyHeritage and Ancestry, focus primarily on providing access to historical records. Twile, on the other hand, helps users get a visualization of the information and easily share it with their family.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission says it has seen a steep rise in cases where amateur genealogists and historians believe they have solved the mystery of unidentified war graves. Similar efforts are underway in the U.S. and in European countries that were the scene of World War I and World War II battles.

The ability to search old war records easily online and the popularity of family history programs such as Who Do You Think You Are? and the the Missing In Action Recovery and Identification Project of the University of Wisconsin at Madison shave led many to turn amateur historian and try to identify the graves of missing ancestors.
