Gift Memberships, Perfect for Last-Minute Holiday Shopping!

by Julie Hill

Posted on December 19, 2011

Just in time for the holidays, we're excited to announce the introduction of gift memberships! Now you can purchase a gift membership to and share the joy of family history with your loved ones.

To purchase an gift membership today visit This makes a fantastic gift for a spouse, child, or parent - or anyone interested in exploring their family history. Best of all, no shipping or standing in line required!

Gift memberships are available for three, six, or twelve month periods and are non-renewing. When you buy a gift membership, you just enter the recipient's name, email address, and a brief message: e.g. "Season's Greetings! Can't wait to see your family tree when you're done!" You can choose the start-date to best fit your recipient's schedule--perhaps to coincide with a New Year's resolution to start doing family history research?

In case you want to hand your loved one a physical gift to unwrap, you will also receive a printable gift membership certificate to present the recipient. On the specified start date of the membership, we will email the recipient to provide a username and password for the new gift membership. We'll also email you (the gift giver) to confirm that the membership has been activated and that we've contacted the recipient.
The gift memberships will be located under our new "Shop" tab, where you can purchase other family history products, such as DNA tests, vital certificates, offline court records, premium reports, and memberships to OneGreatFamily and NewspaperARCHIVE.

We're excited to help you to share your passion for family history research with friends and family! Are you surprising a loved one with the gift of family history this holiday season? Share in the comments below--but don't give away the surprise!
