Are there any recommendations for websites that specialize in creating "Family Websites"? I do not live near my siblings and parent & would love to get us all connected in a different way. I know the technology is there - just looking for something that will be easy for multiple generations to use and enjoy. I also have a very large extended family! I am just so busy I want something simple to use.”

  • We also have family all over the country, from Hawaii to Georgia and a brother in law in Iraq. We use http://www.myfamily.com/. It's free and easy- both important to me! You can post pictures, videos, notes, contact info., family tree, etc. It is password protected too so only the people you "invite" can have access. You can also get a "premium" plan which doesn't have any advertising but I don't mind the ads- they are not too noticeable. You can also upload files- we use this to share Excel and other database files so we can keep everyone updated with current addresses.

  • I've heard good things about http://www.myfamily.com/, although I've not used it myself. I know a few people who use http://www.famster.com - so it might also be worth checking out.
