Famberry: Store Your Family Photos and Stories Online for FREE

We've just heard from this company in the UK - who are doing some seemingly wonderful things for connecting families and storing photos and family stories.  We can't fully endorse them yet, as we haven't used their product, but we invite you to read about and explore their business.

I know that my family has been trying to find a way to do something similar to this.  We all use Ancestry and Family Search for many things - but this company is providing something unique and different than that; a way to help us work together, sharing, in a private environment. 

One terabyte of space for your family, for FREE, forever.

London, England (December 16th, 2014)

To celebrate the move to new server facilities, Famberry, the popular collaborative family tree builder, is giving all users who sign up, a massive one terabyte of space to store their photos and memories.
