Famicity allows you to preserve and enhance your family legacy, from your roots to your future.

Then, the family members will join him on the website and start gathering all the stories, albums or pictures they hold. Every profile on the tree has his own diary and can be enriched by any member of the family. But still, all this content is only shared with the people you let in. Famicity is not just about ancestors. Everyone can write, share, and preserve his own story. The goal is to create, all together, an amazing tool that will be used to keep and transmit family memories.
