Putting your family tree online The question is often asked, "What is the best way to put my family tree online?" That is a "loaded" question. Does "best" mean "easiest", "most impressive", or something else? I think that "best" is like "beauty". It is in the eye of the beholder. Earlier today I looked at a variety of ways to put a family tree online. Screen shots and links to examples can be seen at http://users.skynet.be/gentools/generators.htm None of them looked as "good" in my opinion as http://tribalpages.com/, which is also one of the simplest ways of doing the job. A sample can be seen at http://billbuchanan.tribalpages.com/ A screenshot of the pedigree view follows. It is about 10% of the real size.
