AboutOne And FamilySearch International Form New Relationship To Create First Integrated Living Family History Management System

PAOLI, Pa., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AboutOne ( http://www.AboutOne.com), the leading online family management system, will announce its new relationship with FamilySearch International at the RootsTech genealogy conference this week in Salt Lake City. The annual event, which is hosted by FamilySearch and attracts over 4,000 attendees from around the world, showcases the latest technology and tools available to find, organize, preserve and share family history.

FamilySearch is the largest genealogy organization in the world. According to Gordon Clarke, FamilySearch's Software Partner Manager, "AboutOne is the best family recordkeeping system I have seen. We are happy to work with AboutOne to enable their product to search and connect media to FamilySearch family tree. Adding family tree management to AboutOne's existing family photos and journals features will create the first complete living family history management system."

AboutOne's web and mobile apps make it possible for customers to store and share family memories (photos, videos, documents and journal entries) and household paperwork in a private and secure environment. Users add paperwork, memories and milestones, plus health and possession details as life events happen. To save time, much of the information is automatically entered by the system, and by linking these items to family members and other contacts, users are able to organize, preserve and share a detailed living family history with just a few clicks, while simultaneously getting organized and prepared for life's challenges with no additional effort.

"The first phase of our relationship will be the creation of AboutOne's Elite Advisory Board for FamilySearch customers," says Joanne Lang, AboutOne Founder and CEO. "AboutOne follows Outside-In software development principles to make sure our app meets customers' needs and expectations."

According to Lang, "This advisory group will be made up of genealogists, bloggers, and other FamilySearch customers who will give us input about how they want to use AboutOne to organize, preserve, and share a living family history that contains rich multimedia details about each family member's story, including their memories and milestones, health history, education, career, and possessions. This input will be rolled into the development of AboutOne's living family history management system for Family Search customers, which will be the next phase of the relationship."
