I’ve become very interested in my family history recently, because my grandfather gave my mom some boxes to go through that held pictures, newspaper clippings and other information about our family. I found out that an ancestor of mine was one of the first settlers in Indiana, Pennsylvania, as well as, the fact that teachers seem to run in my family. It’s been a lot of fun making these discoveries with my mom. My great uncle went to great lengths to make a family tree and gather all this information. Can you imagine what he could have done if there had been Internet when he started?
Welcome to Tribal Pages! This is where you can build your family tree, upload family photos and check out your genealogy, all for free! You can even make a Web page for free that houses your family tree so that you can share it with others.
Navigation can be found along the top of the page with the tabs: Home, Family Trees, Search, News and Forum.
Home – This tab will bring you back to the main page at any point during your exploration.
Family Trees – Here you will find a small listing of Web pages that hold family trees whose administrators did a thorough job of documenting their family’s history. You can also search Tribal Pages from here with the engine at the top of the page. All you need to have is the last name of the person you are searching for, even though there are fields for the first name and death year.
Search – In this section, you are faced with two search engines. There is one that allows you to search the USA death records and another that searches the Tribal Pages. For the death records, you can fill in the following search fields: first and last name, year range for birth or death and any USA location. Again, the only required field though is the last name.
News – Here you can read all the latest news and announcements for this Web site.
Forum – You’ll find two message boards on this site. One board is for genealogy and the other is for technical issues with the site. Here you can ask your questions or help answer the questions from others.
I can’t wait to start learning more about my family through this site, as well as, start documenting it online so that all of my family can access it. Have fun!
