Many people were really excited about the new features of trees that will be live this summer. CEO Harrison Tang and Software Development Manager Tomer Almog gave exciting previews of the living tree, which will feature a new way of categorizing your family’s memories by tagging.

It’s finally time for RootsTech 2016! We’re so excited to share what we’ve been working on. We’ve stayed busy developing a new and improved family tree. It is the first interactive tree in which families can discover, share, and preserve their memories together.


If you plan on attending RootsTech this year, please visit us at booth #616 for a preview to see how you add your latest photos as new leaves, organize all your memories by tags, and bring your tree to life! We will also have fun props and a photographer. Stop by to take a fun photo with your family and receive a special giveaway.


We hope to see you there!

RootsTech Video: Reimagining the Family Tree

We we honored to have our CEO, Harrison Tang, lead a workshop during the developer summit at RootsTech last month. In this session, he focused on key features for reimagining the family tree and getting younger generations involved in genealogy. His tips on game mechanics and instant gratification were discussed heavily throughout the entire conference.
