This free resource could be used in a number of curriculum areas for building family trees or history time-lines. For example Art and Design students could build a family tree for an artist which they may be studying, History students could build a family tree about an icon from the past to help explain origin and historic links.
This resource could also be used as a research tool too. There are many family trees available of many famous people to browse and explore. Below is an example of a family tree for Al Gore:
Geni enables families to connect, share, and preserve their lives.
Users can build their family tree through our fun simple interface. Relatives who are added to the tree can join Geni and add other relatives. This makes it easy to grow your tree.
Everyone in the tree has a profile which shows more about them and enables other family members to stay in touch with them. Families can work together to build profiles for common ancestors.
Family members can also share photos, videos, events, discussions, and more. A family timeline shows the history of everyone in the family.
Geni is private. Only the people in your family tree can log in to your tree and your profile. Geni will not share your personal information with third parties. We will not sell your email address or spam you.
We created DailyLit because we spent hours each day on email but could not find the time to read a book. Now the books come to us by email. Problem solved.
We got the idea for DailyLit after the New York Times serialized a few classic works in special supplements a few summers ago. We wound up reading books that we had always meant to simply by virtue of making them part of our daily routine of reading the newspaper. The only thing we do more consistenly than read the paper is read email. Bingo! We put together a first version and began reading “War of the Worlds” and “Pride and Prejudice“. We showed it to friends, added more books and features at their request, and presto, DailyLit was born.
