FamilyBuilder DNA


FAMILYBUILDER'S MISSION IS TO HELP FAMILIES CONNECT

-Special thanks to David Rheins, Chief Marketing Officer, for this article-

We launched our first social network application, Family Tree, in June of 2007 to help people build their family trees on Facebook and quickly realized the increasing trend of how people yearned to be social with their family connections.

Seeking to continue to serve this increasingly evident trend, we built our Family Tree applications to help people foster family interactions and explore their genealogy in social and collaborative environments on all the major social networks online, including Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, Orkut, and Hi5.

By offering our users Family Tree applications within their existing social networks, we removed a major adoption barrier of having to convince one’s relatives to register for an entirely new website.

We also helped people understand that genealogy can be fun -- and not a chore done in the basement of a town hall record room or on an online genealogy service that concentrates on drawing lines into the past.

Familybuilder prides itself on how people are making connections with real-live relatives they can actually interact with -- a major departure from researching deceased relatives alone.

Over the last 15 months, our model has proven itself: we have seen over 21 million relatives added to our applications by over 4.5 million users.

Familybuilder’s DNA kit, the lowest-priced genealogy DNA test on the market at $59.95, an ideal complement for our FamilyTree social network application.
