Zooof your family tree

Have you heard about ZOOOF, the family network?

Well before I tell you about the site, let me give you a clue what it is all about - Genealogy. Wikipedia defines it as "the study and tracing of family pedigrees."

I have painstakingly traced my family tree up to eight generations on my father's side. Wish I had come across this site earlier. This is way more fun. With Zooof you would be able to "Rediscover your close relatives, honor your ancestors, write your own biography," etc.

Signing up was easy. I just clicked the "Become a member now" on their home page. I then entered my name and e-mail. A few seconds later, I received an e-mail inviting me to join in. Choose a login name and password and you are ready to start building your own interactive family tree. You can invite other members of your family to join in and privately chart your family history, share events and even write your biography. When you add your parents, partners or kids, they have some cool and funny Silhouettes to choose from.

Zooof is in Beta right now. It is available in 35 languages, chat, mail and share information. Best of all, becoming a member is totally free. Check out Zooof now.

  1. maybee you know it, but:
    a comparable serves is www.GENI.com but I read, one is not to spread the email addresses in such a way, because "Spamming"
    "Zooof" looks more interesting some around . . . .

  2. That's a risk I have to take. To take no chances, you can create an e-mail for such purposes.

    Another nice website I am using is Tribal pages : http://tribalpages.com/
