Make a Family Tree
The American Family Interactive Tree gives you an opportunity to create a special kind of family tree -- a tree that not only allows you to show the people who compose your family, but to tell their stories. And by telling their stories, you'll create a picture of your family as a whole that shows why it's unique. You'll also be creating an invaluable family history.
