Real-Time Collaboration has announced the release of their latest offering, AncestorSync™, which allows genealogists to seamlessly download, upload, or synchronize their family tree from an online pedigree to their personal computer, and back again. AncestorSync™ is the first service on the market that allows individuals to easily move all of their family history work from a desktop genealogy program to an online pedigree without anyone or anything getting lost in the process.

AncestorSync™ has partnerships with FamilySearch, Geni, Inc., and ourFamilyology, Inc. and is a joint venture of Ohana Software, LLC. and SharingTime, LLC., wholly owned subsidiaries of Real-Time Collaboration.

"AncestorSync™ is precisely the type of service we envisioned when we created the Geni API. Genealogists no longer must choose between their favorite desktop software and Geni. With AncestorSync™ as the bridge, they can maintain their offline tree while taking advantage of the incredibly rich data and collaborative community Geni offers,” states Noah Tutak, Geni CEO.

"AncestorSync makes interfacing your genealogical data with the FamilySearch tree easy. Now there is one product to read, write and synchronize your data, regardless of the desktop software you may own, " says Gordon Clarke, FamilySearch Web Services Product Manager.

“AncestorSync will be of great value to genealogists by expanding their ability to work with their desktop application and sync their data with our online service. We look forward to adding this feature for our customers,” says Brandy Sacco, founder and owner of ourFamilyology.

AncestorSync™ supports a variety of program formats including: Ancestral Quest, Legacy Family Tree, Personal Ancestral File, RootsMagic and GEDCOM. It will soon support The Master Genealogist and MacFamilyTree. AncestorSync™ will be available in June for a budget-friendly $15 annual fee, and is PC and Mac compatible.
