Review of Computerized Ancestor Family Trees
Updated on June 25, 2021
Highlights: The Computerized Ancestor has a relatively small number of family trees compared to other family tree sites. It does, however, have some unique information—and it is free. No membership or registration is required. For me, the Computerized Ancestor had information that allowed me to break through one of my genealogical "brick walls." Perhaps this website might help you as well.
