Crestleaf Review

Crestleaf Review is an awesome online genealogical website to assist you in your family history. Their mission is “to enable people all over the world to capture, preserve and share their family story with living relatives and future generations.”. After reviewing their site, I really like their belief system:
  • We believe that you have a right to discover your relatives for free. These are records of your relatives. And, we don’t think you should have to pay to access them. That’s why we provide full access to more than 90 Million genealogy records. They’re completely free, for everyone.
  • We believe that you're entitled to keep the work that you put into documenting your family history. We promise to never charge you to access your family treeor the information that you add to it. Other sites have built massive businesses by doing this. Maybe that's okay for some. But, we don't believe it's the right thing to do.
  • We believe in privacy. Our historic genealogy records come from public sources. So, we leave them available to the public. But, the family tree you create and the information you add are all completely private. You can invite relatives to collaborate with you on the same tree. Or, you can make it public to others. But, it’s completely your choice.
  • We believe in the preservation of memories and stories. We want our future generations to know where they came from.
  • More than anything, we want to provide everybody with the opportunity to capture their memories before they fade. We want to provide everybody with the opportunity to share their family story with future generations. Leave your legacy.
Some of the features Crestleaf offers is a Family Tree, Memory Box and Timeline. I really like the idea of the Memory Box where you are given enough space to store about 250 photos.

The Crestleaf blog has some great articles to assist you in your genealogical journey. Some of the topics they cover are:
  • 8 Common Types of Vintage Photos to Help You Identify the Past

After looking over Crestleaf, I recommend checking them out and seeing if they can fit your family history needs. I know I will personally refer back to their site for some great informative information and seeing how they can assist me in discovery more about my ancestry.
