A family history website with your own web address

If you have ever spent hours and hours creating a family tree on a search site only to have people steal your research and use it incorrectly, you know how frustrating that can be. By having a site with WorldAncestors, you are in control of who gets permission to view it and what they can see. You can also change the way it looks too with our exclusive design templates. After all it's your site and your research, so you want it to look the best it can, without compromising on features.

Advanced and powerful features

All the sites on WorldAncestors.com are powered by TNG - The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding V9, probably the most powerful and flexible family history software availble online. It has many advanced features that have been developed over the last 10 years. Here are some of them...

  • GEDCOM Import/Export: No need to input everything again.
  • Search: Easy lookup by name, or advanced search on dates, places and more.
  • Dynamic Charts: Pedigree, descendants, timeline, family group sheets, etc. with print option and PDF creation.
  • Clean, Easy to Read: One person per page, sensible layout, clear navigation.
  • Surname Lists: Quickly display your main lines alphabetically and by popularity.
  • Dynamic language switching: have your site in multiple languages and switch between them.
  • Customizeable: Choose from 6 pre-built exclusive templates.
  • Security: Create users with various rights, protect living people and private data.
  • Media: Upload and link photos, douments, videos and more.
  • Administration: Manage everything from a central admin menu.
  • Backup/Restore: Safeguard your data, recover from disaster.
  • Multiple Trees: Host more than one family tree at a time. Import a GEDCOM file for each or add manually.
  • Advanced pedigree charts: Display an indefinite number of generations with images and details.
  • Descendancy chart: See an indefinite number of descendant generations for every person in your file with links to each person's individual page.
  • Register chart: The Standard descendancy chart can instantly be toggled to display in text-only or Register format.
  • Living persons data protected: Visitors to your site will be unable to see data for living individuals unless they log in with the appropriate access.
  • Printer-friendly pages: A link on each page now shows you the same page in a new window, without any headers, sidebars or page backgrounds.
  • Google Maps: Add multiple locations to a map with direct links to Google Earth.
  • Visible to search engines: But only if you want it.
  • Much more: Cemeteries, Dates & Anniversaries, "What's New", etc.
