Spread the word to grow your family tree

One of my favorite things about building my family tree on Mundia is how excited my relatives get when I tell them I am researching our family history. Just by casually mentioning my family tree project at family gatherings or on my Facebook profile I’ve had countless offers to help – and I’ve accepted every one of them!

I’ve discovered that most of the information I need to really get started is available simply from talking to aunts, uncles and cousins. So when I invite them to join me on Mundia and they share the information they have or remember, our tree grows much quicker.

If you haven’t yet started making your family tree, what are you waiting for? Invite your family to join in the fun by sending an email invitation directly from your tree, or from Mundia’s Facebook app. That way they can access your tree, add additional information they have and they can also verify important dates you’ve entered like the birthdays and anniversaries of other relatives.

Not only will you grow your family tree in double time, but with your family calendar up to date, you’ll never forget your grandma’s birthday again!

Does this only work if the person you are inviting doesn’t already have a tree? My sister and I discovered that we had each started a tree and thought it would be good to combine our efforts. We’ve sent each over invites but when we click on the link to accept all we see is our own tree.

Hi Janice–great question!

Do you know if your sister’s tree she created is set to public or private? If you claim the profile she created of you as yourself, then that should give you editor rights to edit that node on the tree, and see your family circle on the tree. Also, the system should match up your tree and hers when you enter matching information so you can link the trees together. This way you can each maintain your own separate trees–so you can create trees for your spouses, etc.–and still connect with one another.

If you have any other questions you can email me at akeck@mundia.com.

Thanks!
