Title

Improving Family History Through Relative Finder

Abstract

3M Relative Finder is a web application intended to help others gain an interest in researching their own family history. Relative Finder allows users to log in with their credentials from the well known geneology website Family Search. After logging in, users can view how they are related to others using the site. The website has been available for several years, and new features are constantly being added. Some of the new features being researched and developed are the availability to view the relationship between two deceased ancestors, and the ability to see the relationship you share with famous people associated with different landmarks around the world.
