Ever sit down around the family table at a reunion looking at old photos and try to figure out who those family members are? With GenerationTree you can preserve that knowledge about your family. Generations from now your descendants will sit around a screen watching and listening to you and their other ancestors talk directly to them about their family history. GenerationTree will give them an understanding of who they are and where they came from. What you input today will become a true family treasure.
GenerationTree allows you and your family to build a virtual family tree starting today and continuing into the indefinite future. Imagine the ability of all of your descendants 50 years from now, 150 years from now and further into the future, to actually see and hear you and all of your descendants describe and illustrate your family's history. What you input today will become a living legacy that will one day be more valuable to your family than gold.
Each individual member of the family can deposit into their "seed box" any form of writing, photography, video and/or audio material to leave for their descendants. Each family member who sets up a seed box will then have access to the contents of every other seed box set up by family members. Your family tree can include seed boxes for all family members, including your children and grandchildren, parents and grandparents, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, nieces and nephews and so on. Your great-great-great grandchildren, and all other current and future family members, will be able to get to know you by simply viewing the contents of your seed box.
GenerationTree allows you and your family to build a virtual living family tree through each generation of the family into the indefinite future. The primary benefit to setting up seed boxes in the first generation will be to share with their descendants whatever information about themselves they desire to leave for future generations. As the years pass and your family grows to the 3rd, 4th and beyond generations, those generations will not only leave information about themselves in their seed boxes for future generations, they will also be able to access information left behind by their ancestors.
