Nowadays, the family unit is becoming more and more interesting and complex. Since time immemorial, man has been travelling and crossing state boundaries and settling in a land different from where he was born. These days with emigration, inter-marriages, re-marriages, adoption and what not, family members are now scattered all over the world.
Wouldn't it be nice if we can have a big picture of our entire family, from current family members to generations back? Actually, now it's possible. There's this site, ZOOOF, The Family Network, that has a system that allows you to build your family tree or network, write your biography, share the birth of a child, learn about your family's history and who knows you might find someone famous in your family somewhere along the line. There are all kinds of modules to share family stories, pictures, and there is even a treasury box to hide family secrets!
This beta version will run until February 14, so if you are interested to give it a try, send them an email with your name, email address, gender, country to: email@example.com, and you will receive a personal invitation link. The program comes in 35 languages.
