The Family Nexus helps families better understand their heritage through the power of place. "Nexus" means a bond or connection and is often used in reference to a place. We believe families are the center place for our lives. Connections with our family members - living and dead - makes our own lives richer and more fulfilling.

Connecting with ancestral places has become easier than ever using The Family Nexus mobile app. This free app uses existing family history data to automatically map your family tree. Learn more about this amazing mobile app here.
