Website: Family iBoard

I have over the years tried to find a site that could be useful for housing something of a private family social network. They have usually proved to be less than suitable. It will probably be something I have another shot at as I get back into the family history research and work on the website again.

The site I’m probably going to look into a bit with the hope that it may assist in accomplishing the private social network side of things is Family iBoard. I only recently became aware of it, so I haven’t had a lot of opportunity to investigate at this stage. However, the article linked to below in which the site was reviewed by Mashable, does fill me with a lot of hope. The only real issue will be getting family members to join, especially given the fees involved. But at roughly $8.00 a year, it’s hardly a huge fee and could prove very useful.

What do others think of the idea? I’d be keen to know. It really seems like a very good site for this sort of thing.

  1. Was looking for the same kind of private network, and didn’t care too much about genealogy but Famicity.com really has all I wanted: privacy, wall, photo sharing, agenda… and a great tree. I’d be interested to know your opinion of it.
