Rootsy is a new site built by a small team of entrepreneurs at Aol’s QLabs tech incubator in New York. Frustrated by how difficult it was to stay in touch with their families, they set out to create an experience that would help them to better connect with their loved ones. Rootsy is a private network just for families that lets users build their family tree and share photos, videos, and stories with their relatives. The free site ensures that no one outside your family tree can view what you post.
The interactive family tree tool lets you map out your family relationships and explore your heritage. Everyone you add can then share their favorite family moments by uploading photos, videos, and memories.
