• About Us

    Family Tree Forum was founded in September 2006. Our primary aim is to provide a site where our members can research and socialise in a safe, friendly and helpful environment. Registration is free, and our members are dedicated to assisting all genealogists, whether they are beginners or experienced researchers.

    Please be aware that despite the name, we are not a forum specifically for FTDNA or the software Family Tree Maker, although our members may well be able to answer your questions.

    Our forums are the most active areas of the site. On our genealogy forums members can ask for advice or offer helpful tips to other researchers. To post on these forums you have to be a registered member, although they can be read by non members.

    Registering as a member at Family Tree Forum will give you access to our names database. Searches are possible using any combination of First Name, Surname, Place of Birth and Year of Birth.

    We also have very active community forums where members can take a break from research to socialise, arrange meets, show off family photographs or discuss issues of the day. Community forums are only open to registered members.
