“Famlu.com has really brought our family together and it’s all because you have such a fun platform with so many great features and new ones being added all the time. Thank you for giving us such a fun ‘home’ online where we can all get together”, as quoted from a Famlu.com user.
The main features offered by Famlu.com:
Gallery of Photos – This is the area where family members can upload and share photos and of course add their comments. Then everyone else will of course chime in with their comments. Slide show viewing is also possible. It’s your option.
Family Tree – This is where a family tree format is used to display photos and information of family members, now and in past generations. You will post photos of children, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and even great grandparents.
Members – All family members will be listed here with name, phone number and contact information. This makes it so easy for everyone to stay connected and continually communicate with everyone at once.
Family Newsletter – Once members of the family post a number of news items, the user can click on this option and easily create a Family Newsletter that then can be sent out to everyone in the family.
Discussion Forum – This private area is for family members only and is used when members wish to communicate with each other.
Famlu.com offers a number of very innovative features, which are also offered with the free website. There is a family calendar where users can schedule events and send reminders. There is a journal feature as well for those wanting to keep a “diary”. There is an option for adding music and you can customize further by changing the themes of the pages to follow the seasons or as certain important events unfold. There are also upgrades to further customize your website that can be implemented for a slight fee.
