AppleTree is a web application for creating family trees. AppleTree also features a "world" family tree that all users can add to. Users can also upload and share photos on their family tree, as well as creating events to share on their family tree.
The AppleTree API allows developers to access and integrate the data and functionality of AppleTree with other applications and to create new applications. Some example API methods include searching for people, returning profile information about people, and searching and uploading photos.
We are all proud of our family history. But how many of us use tools to not just understand discover more about our family but also document and share this information with others, given that the keyword 'social' has crept its way across most applications. RootsTech, a conference that is focused on family history research, brings together professionals from the field of technology and genealogy has thrown open a Developer Challenge to help create these applications.
