Mundia’s new Facebook application lets you create, discover and share your family history in an easy and fun way – start by building a family tree, inviting others to your family tree, and discovering new relatives when we find matches with other family trees.

You can do basically anything in the Mundia application on Facebook that you can do on the web site, including:

• Build a family tree and share it with others
• Receive hints about matching relatives and ancestors in other member trees
• Contact other members and discover new relatives
• Share family news, photos, stories and comments with people in your family
• Link into a global platform of more than 12 million trees and 1.25 billion profiles

You can also easily invite other family members that are your friends on Facebook to join your family tree.

The Mundia application is available in 14 languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Ukrainian, French, German, Italian, Swedish, Dutch, Polish, Japanese and Korean.

We hope you will enjoy sharing Mundia with your family on Facebook – and if you like Mundia, please become a fan of the Mundia application and give it a nice rating on Facebook.

We appreciate all of the positive Mundia product feedback and suggestions we’ve received. We are excited about the new features and functionality we plan to add to the site in the near future. We also hope you are enjoying some of the things we’ve added recently. Here are a few of the highlights:

Japanese and Korean language additions
Mundia is now available in Japanese and Korean. It is exciting to see the faces and activity of our newest members from Asia.

Facebook Application – All of the functionality available on the Mundia site is now available in our Facebook application as well. We hope you will enjoy sharing Mundia with your family on Facebook. You can also suggest the Mundia Facebook application to friends.

Tree Facts – We’ve added a Tree Facts page that shows the top birth countries of people in your family tree as well as other information including the most common names, average life span and family size, and other information. You can access this page through the My Tree Facts link near the top of the page when viewing your family tree.

We look forward to telling you about the next set of new features we’re launching soon.
