Project Idea: Favorite childhood stories


16 Aug 2010

0 Comments

If you’re struggling to come up with ideas of what type of stories to share on your Mundia family tree, here’s another idea to get you started:  Share your favorite childhood story.

Childhood is meant to be silly and carefree.  Why not use your Mundia family tree as a way to preserve and share those with the rest of your family, including your own children?  Those silly, inside jokes you share with cousins, or siblings are great stories that help your children to see their parent in a new light.  It’s also great fun to reconnect with those siblings and cousins to have them add details you may have forgotten about the story.

Did you take an annual family camping trip?  Have a silly holiday tradition?  Play silly games at family reunions?  Did your grandparent used to enjoy telling ghost stories, or “when I was a kid…” stories?  Did you used to beg mom or grandma for a particular homemade cookie?  Maybe you and your brother or sister shared your vegetables with the family dog under the table? 

Family stories are treasures that should be cherished and preserved to be handed down from generation to generation.  Start sharing your family stories on Mundia today!

As you know, we are working hard to make Mundia better, and to add new features that make the site easier to use.  The latest addition to the site is the Photo Tagging feature – you can now tag your photos and each time you tag an individual, you can send them an email via Mundia to invite them to view the photos you’ve uploaded.

In addition to tagging, we’ve now added the ability to import your photos directly from Facebook.  Import all your Facebook photo albums, or select the ones you’d like to share with family on Mundia!  When you import and share photos on Mundia, you must make sure that you have the consent of any living family members and friends in the photos (or, in the case of photos which include people under 16, the consent of their parent or guardian).

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!

We’re working hard to make Mundia a wonderful place to collaborate with your family members on your family tree or share photos, stories and family news. That’s why we’ve made it even easier to invite family members to your tree via Facebook. Simply click on the “Add family from Facebook” link at the top of your family tree, and you can easily add relatives from your list of Facebook friends.

Once you’ve identified your relatives from your list of friends on Facebook, you can drag and drop them onto their nearest direct relative in the family tree to copy their information into Mundia. After you’ve placed them in the tree, you’ll be able to see their Facebook updates on Your Home Page, share photos and stories with them, as well as collaborate as you add new ancestors and relatives to your family tree together.

We hope that you take advantage of this new feature to start inviting your relatives from Facebook today.
