HI ,
This is an invitation from the Ohile team to try out the Free familiy tree building software we have launched. With this software you would be able to properly map all relatives on to a tree. Family history page will have the chronological order of events which has lead the family to it's present form and will be searchable by those relatives trying to locate you. The famiily which is made by a person is private and though visible to all registered users , can be edited only when the person is a part of the tree

we hope that continuing with the creation of one family tree, you wll create several more and link these family trees so that the complete fabric of humanity can be woven.
We will be shortly making family history searchable to enable easier access to any distant cousin who may be looking for you.

Please go through the site and give us your valuable feedback to help us evolve into what you can leave for as legacy for your future generations.

Thank You
OHILE Team.
