Announcing: A Fun New Feature to Help Build Your Family Tree

20 Dec 2010


We’re excited to let you in on a new Mundia feature that makes building your family tree faster, easier and more fun! Now you can collect points, earn badges and unlock features as you build your family tree.

When you log into Mundia for the first time, you’ll see a welcome message guiding you through suggested family tree tasks. Below your tree you’ll find a “scoreboard” showing your tree building progress, the number of family members in your tree, and a link to your task list.

Tree Building Progress Bar

How Many Family Tree Points do you Have?

Log in to Mundia now and click the “View tasks” button to see an overview of tasks you’ve completed, points you’ve earned and tasks awaiting completion.

Tree Building Task List

Login to Mundia to see your tree building Task List

Click the “Add now” Button to Complete Tasks

To complete a task simply click on the “Add now” button in your task list and you’ll see useful tips to help you complete the task. With each completed task you will earn points and we’ll guide you step-by-step from one task to the next.

Once you’ve worked your way through most of the task list, you would have made a great start to your family tree. In recognition of your tree building accomplishments, when you get 32 points you will get a Mundia Seedling badge that you can post to Facebook if you like.

In the future we’ll be adding more tasks to guide you through the tree building process and more rewards to recognize the work you do on your tree. Not only will you be able to earn more badges, you can expect to unlock new features and make interesting discoveries as you progress with your tree.

We hope you find this new feature helpful in growing your family tree and connecting with your relatives. Don’t forget to check it out now and let us know what you think.

Have fun!

todo me parece bien ,pero cuando no se cuenta con fotos de antepasados solo nombres y apellidos no se logra completar las tareas, lo mismo ocurre con parientes en extrangero piden correos electronico que se ignoran solo se sabe de apellidos ¿como se hace en esos casos?

Las tareas de fotos se pueden completar con fotos de cualquier persona en tu arbol. La foto no se necesita ser de un antepasado.

What a stupidly compiled system. Some have no siblings, some have a dozen or more. Most people have 4 grandparents, not 2, and 8 great-grandparents, not 2.

Thanks for your feedback Querida. I appreciate that the system is not perfect. Please bear in mind however that this is the first implementation of the Mundia point system and we intend to expand the list of tasks in the near future.

In the meantime, if you go ahead and add family members that do not currently have a task associated with them in the Task List, you will automatically be credited with the correct points when an associated task is added to the list.

I hope that helps!

Não consigo ver os “parentes” que os outros familiares acrescentam à minha árvore genealógica. Acho que deviam aparecer (pelo menos os nomes). Assim não adianta nada ter mais elementos da familia a completar a mesma árvore! Nem tão pouco consigo ver quem os colocou na árvore.
