Here at Findmypast, we're pretty proud of our family tree builder. It's free, easy to use and packed with features that help to make building a family tree as straightforward as possible. Plus, within minutes of starting a tree on Findmypast, you'll begin to receive Hints on the information you've added.

What are Hints?

Hints are our way of helping you along on your family history journey. Whenever you add anyone to your tree, Hints will search our records in the background, suggesting potential record matches to the people on your tree – or even new relatives entirely.

Meet the family you've never met
