environment, MyFamily.com users can hold family discussions,

on this web site are:
Album - The online family album allows members to store
and share photos, sounds and video clips with site members.
Photo album images can be captioned and dated.

add, view and update their latest discoveries to their own
family tree in a private environment.

Gift Center makes family gift giving easier than ever. The
