TribalPages.com, a leading online genealogy hosting service, is now providing two powerful tools to help customers manage their family photos and genealogy records. Released today, their email upload tool lets family history buffs add photos and images to their family tree website as simply as they send pictures to their family.
"At TribalPages, we pride ourselves on how easy our free family tree websites are to use -- it's really what sets us apart. This new tool lets our users attach pictures to an email and send it just like they would to their parents or grandkids," explains Vandana Rao of TribalPages, "We also love the way it lets our site owners make the most of programs like iPhoto, Picasa, Google Earth and other great tools that let you send pictures by email very easily."
The Email Upload tool is also a great way to get family members involved and to follow up a family reunion. The site owner can give out the upload address to let other family members add pictures without giving up control of the site's core genealogy data. If needed, the site owner can always change the address and revoke their access.
For the genealogist with a larger collection of photos to upload, TribalPages also offers it's Windows XP Publishing Wizard, which has been available since early March. Integrating tightly with the Windows Explorer interface, this tools lets family historians publish hundreds of photos to their family tree site in minutes. It's a great way to quickly publish your research to share with family members.
These new tools can be accessed from the "Bulk Upload Options" section of the pages users usually use to send individual photos. According to Rao, TribalPages is so excited about the potential of the email feature that they plan a series of articles (to be published once each week) explaining how to make the most of it.
Both of these new tools are available to all of TribalPages customers: those with free genealogy sites and those who have opted to upgrade their sites to get extra photo storage and remove all advertising. "We're committed to providing a fantastic feature set to our free site owners," added Rao, "We're proud to still offer free family tree sites that don't expire and have no limit to the number of family members in your tree."
Over the past seven years, TribalPages.com has gained a loyal following and an outstanding reputation by providing free and inexpensive genealogy sites while protecting the site owner's content and privacy with flexible security options. Their easy to use online interface requires no external genealogy program to use and provides some of the best photo integration features on the web.
