If you’re looking for a place to house your family tree online, consider the FamilySearch Family Tree. This tool on the free genealogy giant website FamilySearch.org lets you build your family tree as part of a world tree, which allows you to collaborate with others on your family history research.
By building your tree on this site, you can get Record Hints for historical records on FamilySearch.org that match your ancestors, as well as research suggestions and tips on possible data errors or issues.
For a quick step-by-step primer to build your family tree on FamilySearch.org, check out my tutorial in the December 2015 Family Tree Magazine.
