Interested participants

A place where individuals can submit their family trees and have them sewn into the whole. Ultimately creating a universal tree. In every family there is always that one genealogy buff who compiles the family tree for the whole family, it would be almost trivial to implement a project that would make all that valuable information public and easily accessible. Imagine the implications for disease research!

  • Oppose Oppose There are already Ancestry.com, 23andMe, etc. for this. Plus, most users will not want to input family info so publicly onto a wiki. SelfieCity (talk) 17:17, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
