We are all working together in the creation of the human family tree of the world to reveal we are one world; united through our stories, photos, connections; preserved forever for everyone.
Creating the single human family tree of the world linking everyone that ever lived is an ambitious project. We feel it's an important one as well for all mankind. We all share the age-old question "where did I come from", and together we can answer that question for ourselves and for the generations ahead. AppleTree.com is and will remain free to use, and content contributed and shared here is open to the public. We believe that removing barriers to collaboration and through relevant and timely notifications, the global tree will take shape quickly, efficiently, and with the greatest possible accuracy. The positive impact for mankind's having universal access to these connections is unimaginable.
Using this web-based system, AppleTree.com provides an extension to your personal family history desktop research work. We are excited about the power of a worldwide community collaborating and sharing all kinds of information and media. We want to help you tell and preserve your story, and the stories of countless others through your contributions.
We are committed to this ultimate reality. We are committed to the open availability of information. We are committed to enabling discovery, forging new connections, and the preservation of what's important to you. We are committed to making this experience free of charge - in perpetuity. We are committed to you and all of us together as one. Our goal is to be the web's largest community for family history experience, and we invite you to join us. Welcome to the family!
