features and tools ever compiled in one convenient location. From our

safe place to play. To view a short, flash video presentation
describing each feature, simply click on the image next to it. The Family Tree
The Family Tree is a user-friendly genealogy chart that helps you record and map out your family's history. With this tool, you can create detailed profiles of every single person in your family, including physical traits, personality characteristics, and even a favorite saying or quote. The Family Tree is perfect for sharing your personal history with all of your friends and relatives, and it's a great way to help your children learn all about their ancestors.
Family Photo Album
The Photo Album is a wonderful way to share photographs with friends and family scattered all across the world. The Flash-based interface makes it easy for anyone to quickly upload and organize photos, and with features like the automatic resizing tool, you can be sure that your online photo albums always look professional. You can create as many photo albums as you want, and you will still have plenty of room left over for all your family members to create their own personal photo albums.
The online Scrapbook is a wonderful tool for capturing the most memorable events and holidays in your family's life. Pre-formatted layouts and themes make it easy for anyone to add pictures and captions to a basic Scrapbook page. Once you're comfortable with this tool, you will be able to customize every inch of your scrapbook with countless combinations of fonts, colors, images, shapes, backgrounds, and themes.
The Blog tool is an online journal that lets you and your family members share their thoughts and opinions with all the people who visit your Family Website. This incredibly popular technology gives everyone in your family a chance to create their own blog to write about anything they want: the family's summer vacation, a movie they recently watched, or any other special or important experiences. With extra features like rich-text editing and the ability to add photos to blog entries, you and your family are going to love creating and updating your own personal blogs.
If you've been looking for a place to find delicious new recipes to impress your friends and family, look no further than our Recipe Center. You will be able to access thousands of recipes collected from professional chefs and outstanding self-taught cooks like yourself, and who knows, you may even find a few "secret" recipes from some of the best chefs and restaurants across the globe.
The File Cabinet provides you with an ideal way to store and share large electronic files in a secure, remote location. It is almost impossible to send photos, music files, or large documents using e-mail, but with the File Cabinet tool, you and your friends and family can easily upload dozens of these files directly to one central, online location that all of you can access from any computer connected to the Internet.
The Calendar provides you and your family with an invaluable tool for organizing and managing all of the birthdays, appointments, events, and meetings in your hectic schedule. Create individual calendars for everyone in your family to keep track of their own important dates and events, and maintain one master calendar to manage all the soccer games, dance recitals, PTA meetings, business luncheons, and doctor's appointments in your family's busy life in one central location.
You ever wonder what you would look like as a cartoon? Why not experiment with your Family Website Character Studio and find out? Mix and match your body size, eye type, nose and eyebrow shape with a library of contemporary hairstyles and outfits. And while you're playing, go ahead and try on some blonde hair or see how you would look with a different nose or maybe a beard. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination. With the Character Studio tool, you can animate all of your loved ones - even the family dog!
Once you've finished creating cartoon versions of your family in the Character Studio, the real fun begins when you get to choose a background for you family using the Theme Park tool. You'll find a wide assortment of static and Flash-animated environments that allow you to place your family in locations like the beach, Mount Rushmore, or even in outer space. You'll also have the option of uploading your own photos as backgrounds, and even be able to set your Family Website as your Home page on the Internet. With over 150 different Theme Parks to choose from, you're sure to find a background that is perfect for you family.
Layered Password Protection
Instead of just using one general password to protect your entire Family Website, you have the ability to create passwords for all the individual components and sections on your site. Every single blog, calendar, photo album, and file cabinet can have its own unique password-even if it's already in a safe, private area that is also password protected. With these extra layers of security, you can be certain that only family and friends get in, and everyone else will be kept out.
The Guestbook tool offers you a fun way to keep track of everyone who has ever visited your Family Website. Through your Guestbook, both new and returning visitors may leave messages, share their impressions or simply just "sign in" to let you know that they were there. To protect the integrity of your site's content, the messages are not viewable until you have approved them - giving you control.
Free Family Domain Name
Everyone who purchases a Family Website automatically receives a free domain name with their new site. If you're having trouble thinking of a unique domain name for your Web site, you can always use our special Domain Name tool to generate a list of Web site addresses that incorporate your family's last name.
Once you have selected a domain name for your Family Website, you can create up to five different e-mail accounts that use your family's name in the e-mail address. Each account automatically comes with spam filtering tools, e-mail forwarding, plenty of storage space, and many other great features you won't find with basic e-mail service.
Syndicated News and Information (RSS)
The Syndicated News and Information tool uses a popular syndication technology called RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, to deliver real-time updates from a variety of popular Web sites directly to you. Browse through our list of nearly 150 different content providers, covering topics like local, national, and world news, travel, politics, sports, business, weather, and entertainment, and we will automatically update your Family Website whenever updates are made to one of the sites you selected.
