Creating Family History Webpages


Ready to publish your family history? Great! Here are some tips to putting it online.

Choose a Webpage Provider
If you use a large provider to access the Internet, chances are you already have free webspace available to you. A lot of ISPs now provide 5-10mb of free webspace. And many include easy to use tools and features like earthlink.net.

Genealogy Webspaces

Here are some providers of webspace for genealogy use.

FamilyInHistory
At FamilyInHistory.com, a genealogist can upload a GEDCOM and it will instantly create a full website for them where each ancestor has an individual page for a biographical sketch, histories, photographs, timeline events and of course their pedigree/descendancy charts. The site also allows the administrator to give permissions to other users so that family members can collaborate on adding these histories and photographs to the website. If the user updates their genealogy database on their software (like PAF), they can simply reupload their GEDCOM and it will update the site appropriately.


Tribal Pages
Tribal Pages is an excellent free service. Give them a try!

RootsWeb

Start with the Basics
By using Tribal Pages or RootsWeb you can begin to build your family history pages right away. Always start with their “How TO” section and progress from there. This way even if you have some webpage knowledge you will be able to create a stunning genealogy on their site with their features.


Put Up Letters and Diaries
One of the most fascinating things about sharing family histories is reading the letters and diaries from years gone by. Make sure you are only using the letters and diaries of people who have already passed. That way you are not violating any privacy issues.

Privacy

When using Tribal Pages you have the option to password protect your information. This way only people you know will have access to it. This is a nice feature and one to think about. Whether you use that feature or not don’t put up personal information about current generations if you use any of their names for security at you banks.

All in all this is a fun and meaningful pastime. Posting your family history will help you to share your whole family, with, your whole family!
