AppleTree.com Targets Online Family Trees
A new, online family tree site has surfaced in Southern California, AppleTree.com, based in Manhattan Beach, which apparently has the involvement of former GoToMyPC founder Klaus Schauser. According to AppleTree's web site, it is a publicly viewable, openly editable and global family tree, which allows friends and relatives to collaborate to help fill out their family tree. Schauser, an active angel investor, is listed as a board member of the firm in regulatory filings. The firm would be the second, Web-based family tree site in Los Angeles, after Geni.com, the online family tree site headed by former PayPal founder David Sacks.
