Free your stories from outdated technology and paper files, inspire your family with a living online archive
The uncomfortable truth
"I don't give a damn"
WeAre.xyz recognises that relatives rarely share our passion, and yet still ensures that a living family archive is established.
the problem with books & websites
Writing it all up in weighty tomes and personal websites often leads to disappointment. They have their place, but often people find them overwhelming and leave them to gather dust.
be a ‘bitesize’ genealogist
Engage your family, by doing your research in plain sight, adding each new discovery as you go. Sit back as your archive drip feeds relatives with tantalising updates and inspires them to add their own more recent memories.
establish your family’s archive
Before you know it, your archive will become part of the family.
STEP 1: GEDCOM to joy!!
Armed with your family tree GEDCOM, in minutes you have created your family's archive. Or build your family tree afresh.
STEP 2: Indulge and enjoy!
Now get busy, on and off, for the rest of your life, BUT there is no rush. Fascinate and enjoy one thing at a time. Gradually you will create a kaleidoscope of captivating artefacts, photos, videos & stories.
STEP 3: Invite them in now!
Don’t wait too long to enrol your relatives. You want them receiving bitesize items to tempt and intrigue them from time to time, not give them the keys to a packed warehouse.
STEP 4: Sit back... job done!
Let your archive float down the river of time towards future generations.
SEE FOR YOURSELF...

"It's not often I get this excited about family tree software. If you want to share your work and family stories trust me this is the best piece of family history software I have seen!"

"One of the most powerful ways to share family history is through storytelling. And one of the biggest challenges is to find an effective way to do just that. We Are's approach is nothing short of revolutionary."
JANE CHAPMAN, NZ
"One of the things I particularly like is that it will enable me to preserve my research and findings for future generations by making trusted family Admins when I need to e.g. before I 'lose my marbles' and/or drop dead!"
