A great new way to prune your family tree, online

Storytree is a brand-new Web utility—it launched just this week and immediately drew the attention of The New York Times, Fast Company, and other media outlets—that lets you make and share family trees quickly and easily online.

Created by two designers who met at Stanford University, Storytree starts you off by sending a set of basic, customizable questions to your relatives (who can answer via webcam, or upload their own photos or audio files). The results are simple to add to or prune, the interface is so intuitive that grandparents shouldn’t have much trouble mastering it, and the site’s still in beta mode, and free to use.
