Mashable Top 5 genealogy site

Favorite tool for building an online family scrapbook!

“Welcome to the new genealogy metaphor… This is the type of innovation that I came to RootsTech to find.”
The In-Depth Genealogist

“Treelines is possibly my new favorite genealogy website…not only do I love the concept of a site helps you tell your family stories, I love that Treelines makes it easy to do!”
Elyse Doerflinger, winner of the 2012 Suzanne Winsor Freeman Student Genealogy Grant

A “visual photographic narrative program unlike any you may have seen before.”
James Tanner, Genealogy’s Star

“This looks like a really useful program for telling stories and linking them to persons.”
“There are some wonderful stories already posted on Treelines – read some of them.”
Randy Seaver, Genea-Musings

“Now this is a very exciting app… My daughter, who is into genealogy, she’s really into the visual way to present things. She’s going to flip when I show her this.”
“When you go to a funeral or a wedding, or you go to visit somebody… now you can pull out this! I love it!”

Great new tool to build bridges between now & then.
Denise Levenick, author of How to Archive Family Keepsakes

“Treelines provides a way to present the stories one collects during one’s research and present it for family (read: non-genealogist) consumption in a graphically, consumer-friendly and pleasing manner.”
Emily Garber, (going) The Extra Yad

Treelines is “pulling in a lot of what I’ve noticed in the way my kids read and write and share online — visual interest and flexibility in how much and what you write being biggies.”
Liz Haigney Lynch, The Ancestral Archaeologist
