ourFamily•ology Software Review
6/11/2014
Learn how this new web-based genealogy software stacks up.
Price: $18 a year for 100MB storage, $35 for 300MB, $50 for 600MB and $75 for 1GB
 
 
System requirements: Internet access
 
Demo/trial version: free 15-day membership
 
Biggest draws: collaboration, update the same person in multiple files simultaneously
 
Drawbacks: site navigation, sluggish operation, charts and reports

The heart of the program lies under the Tree tab, where you can navigate around your family tree in Family or Pedigree view. To edit an individual, you have to go to Family view and click on the Edit link beside a parent or child.
 
The site offers several help options: Click the question mark at the top of a page to open a pop-up help window. Click the Support link in the upper-right corner of any screen to access tutorials, a help index and a form to submit a technical question.
