Twile users can now access the following free of charge features:

  • Build a family tree
  • Share and collaborate with family
  • Add unlimited milestones and photos
  • Import trees and milestones from FamilySearch
  • Import and merge multiple GEDCOM files

Paul Brooks (pictured), Twile's CEO, said: 'When we started Twile, our vision was for all family members to share and collaborate on their family story. We want family historians to share their research with their family and we want the whole family to get involved - we felt that the paid subscription was getting in the way.

Although we will no longer be charging customers to use our core product, clearly we still need to make money. We have some ideas for optional add-ons that customers could purchase to enhance their Twile experience, but we don’t plan to charge a subscription fee or to limit usage again.'
