View and edit close family of people in your tree

Good news! Building your family tree on Mundia is now easier than ever. We’ve consolidated all the tree editing features into a convenient side panel, so now you can easily edit and view profile information without ever leaving your family tree. Log into Mundia now and click on a profile in your family tree to try out the new side panel

The new family tree side panel allows you to easily:

  • View and edit the details of a person in your tree
  • View a list of a person’s immediate family
  • Add close family members to anyone in your tree
  • See all the photos of people in your tree
  • Ask a family member for more information about a relative
  • Change the profile photo of a person in your tree
  • Delete someone from your tree

We’ve also made improvements to the family tree pedigree view. So now you can easily edit your family tree in your preferred view – bottom to top or left to right.

We’re really grateful for all the helpful feedback we’ve received and hope you’ll enjoy these latest site improvements. Log into your Mundia account now to take the new side panel for a spin.

Happy tree building!

Summary of New and Enhanced Mundia Features

11 May 2010


Over the last several months we’ve added and enhanced a number of features to make building your family tree easier and more enjoyable. We’ve posted about many new features as they’ve launched, but I thought it would be a useful to summarize some of the main improvements for you today.

Invite family from your email contacts

If you use Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, Gmail or AOL as your email client, you can upload selected contacts directly to your Mundia account. This makes inviting family to your tree easier than ever.

Invite your family from Facebook or your email address book

Invite family from your Facebook friends list

You can also invite family to your tree by connecting to your Facebook account within Mundia. Then just drag and drop family members from your friends list onto your family tree canvas. By adding family members from Facebook you will also be able to see your relatives’ Facebook posts and comments from your Mundia home page.

Improved user interface

Thanks to your feedback, we’ve improved the tree builder user interface to make it much easier to edit, add, and remove relatives from your tree.

Share photos and family stories

Mundia makes it easy to share family photos and stories. Not only is this a great way to preserve precious family memories, but it’s also fun to share with family around the world and remember special occasions together.

Hinting helps you find relatives

When you enter information into your Mundia family tree we automatically look for other Mundia members’ trees with matching information. When we find a match, you’ll see a little shaking leaf icon next to a person in your tree for whom a match has been found. By adding as much information about your family to your tree, you improve the likelihood of finding relatives on Mundia and having your relatives find you via our hinting feature. This feature is becoming increasingly effective as more and more people build their family trees on Mundia.

Upload your GEDCOM file

GEDCOM is a common digital family tree format. If you’re new to building a family tree on your computer then you won’t have a GEDCOM file but if you’ve started building a family tree before and have a copy of your tree in GEDCOM format, you can easily upload your GEDCOM file into Mundia to make adding your tree to Mundia a breeze.

Thanks again for your continued feedback and support in helping us make Mundia better for everyone. We look forward to bringing you many more improvements and new features in the months ahead!

Improved Family Tree Viewer Interface

9 Apr 2010


We’re excited to announce the recent roll-out of an improved interface in the Mundia family tree viewer that makes it easier to add/edit profiles and invite others to the tree. When you move your cursor over a profile card in the tree, a new, easier-to-understand menu will pop up next to the profile card with options to view the profile in greater detail, edit or delete that person in the tree, add family members that are connected to that person in the tree, switch views between the family view and the pedigree view of the tree, and invite the person to the tree.

We hope that these changes will make Mundia easier to use and help you create even larger family trees!

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.
