GeneTree (www.genetree.com) – The society is divided in to families. Family contains a group of people which are related to each other by blood. This system is working since the time of human’s existence on this planet. Earlier people lives in joint families but as they time passes people never prefer to live in nuclear families. With this everyone has lost many brothers and sisters from ancestors and you cannot even identify them. If you are looking to make a family or trying to find out your brothers or sister from your ancestors GeneTree.com is for you.

Usability and Design: The homepage of genetree is catchy with just what is required. It clearly shows the three services this website provides namely:

- Order DNA Test and acess to DNA ancestral database.
Navigation is easy and the website is professionally designed with very usable post login features.
Use of DNA test and access to DNA ancestral database did not match so nicely to family tree community. I am not sure how many people would be using this feature on the website. GeneTree has a database of about nearly 100,000+ samples in its DNA ancestral database.
