Last week, I did a brief review of the fun to use website for genealogy, Twile. This week, they added to their site the ability to have their graphics printed! Twile is the company that creates fun to see genealogy infographics using your GEDCOM file. My review is right below this post, so check that out for more information.
Since I created my 2 images for free with Twile, some of my younger family members have expressed an interest to know more about genealogy, and a desire to create their own graphics.
Sometimes, the hardest part of doing genealogy is trying to get other family members interested and engaged!
I really like my Twile experience, and I am looking forward to what they have plans for in the future!
I saw an ad with some really interesting and cool graphics last week for a company called Twile. That ad promised easy to create graphics that would make genealogy more interesting and accessible for family members that perhaps don't have the genealogy fever that some of us do.
The graphic that was showed looked really interesting and cool.
I saved the link, but I put off messing around with the site until I had a little bit of time.
I like their "Trees Without Roots Fall Over" Tagline. It is catchy.
The infographic that is offered is eye catching as well. I downloaded the 2 that are currently offered. One is called pastel, and the other, in honor of Saint Patrick's Day is Green and Orange.
Follow their easy instructions about getting your gedcom file. It is pretty simple. I opted to use my gedcom file from Ancestry.com. I searched online about how to download my gedcom from Ancestry and it was pretty simple.
After I uploaded the file to Twile, it took less than five minutes and I was able to look at their site and see how they presented the information that is my family tree.
I can't wait to see what else Twile has up their collective sleeves to make genealogy fun and engaging for the family historian to engage other members, but this is a really good, fun and easy to use tool!
I write a lot about genetic genealogy, family trees, DNA, and home life as well as the occasional product review. Comments? Email me at CocktailsAndSwagger@Hotmail.com
