“RootsCity: A Better Way to Build Your Family Tree Online”

Dallan Quass

Categories: IR, LDS

Talk Abstract:
With RootsCity you control who can read and edit your tree. You can
get hints from multiple record providers (FamilySearch, FindMyPast,
and others). You can compare your tree with other trees and see at a
glance which trees agree or disagree with yours and how highly the
trees are rated. RootsCity is source-centric, meaning that sources are
easy to add and strongly encouraged. It has a fresh user interface
(UI) that appeals to both genealogists and non-genealogists, making it
easy to share what you know with others. RootsCity is currently in
limited beta. The talk will include a key for free access to the beta.
