“Build Your Family Tree” will let you store, sort and display your family’s data right on your iPhone. It’s easy to use, no monthly fees, and no in-app purchases. Bring it to family gatherings and fact finding trips. Add family members either manually or copy them from your address book. Each member’s profile includes their photo, parents (both biological and step/adopted), year-of-birth, year-of-death, facts and events. You may list anything as a fact, such as occupation, residence, and notes. You may include anything date related as an event, such as births, deaths, marriages, divorce, graduations, new occupation, retirement. Fun for the family. Educational for the kids.
