PeoplePlotr -- Web-based People Plots and Family Trees




As we all know, there are many ways to “share” a visual of our family tree (whether on or off line) and a new online one that caught my eye is PeoplePlotr.  I also found it interesting in that it’s not “limited” to representing family connections in a traditional genealogical-way; you decide “how” to share.  You can also plot personnel at your company, members of your organization and so much more!

Though there are paid subscription levels, you can start with a free account which allows the following:

  • Basic account that allows you to create a fully-functional plot*
  • Limited to one plot
  • Up to 30 people on plot
  • Add Flickr images
  • Embed YouTube and Vimeo vids
  • Share plots with others
  • Choose background image


If you’ve used this service – what do you think?  Are there other similarly flexible family tree plotting services?
