Using Collaborative "BIG" Family Trees
Not "your tree," not "my tree," but "our tree!"  Each historical person should have one profile in a collaborative tree, and the goal should be to make that profile complete and accurate with sources, notes and media.  In these trees, any registered user can add, edit or delete content and a reason for doing so.  This presentation discusses the features, uses, benefits, and drawbacks of WikiTree (free), Geni.com ($$), Ancestry ($$), and FamilySearch Family Tree (free).
