Build your family tree

It's easy and completely free to build your family tree at Findmypast. You can add photos, facts and attach records containing important details about each relative in your tree. If you have built your tree elsewhere, you can import it as a GEDCOM file and continue working on it online. Once you've started adding relations to your family tree, we'll send you Hints to help you grow your tree and identify new ancestors.
