What is the history and popularity of the app?

Mundia was developed by the creators of Ancestry. Both of these sites are a part of the Generations Network. Based out of Provo, Utah, the original Ancestry website emerged in 1996 however saw minimal popularity until around 2000. Today, Mundia is a budding new addition to the Generations Network. It is still in a beta status.

What are the differences to other apps?

At first glance, Mundia seems to be a watered down version of Ancestry. The website specifically states that Mundia is not intended to phase out Ancestry, but to compliment it as a supplemental family tree tool. What makes Mundia different seems to be a focus on a more personal level. Users can add family news to their tree or contact distant relatives through the website. Mundia also users maps to identify the location of users.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Mundia website has a slightly more modern appearance in terms of design. It uses the same rich green color scheme as Ancestry. The sleek Mundia logo features a stylized leaf image rather than the classically elegant design favored by Ancestry. The website is well organized and makes good use of black and white maps, which are marked with orange people icons.

How does the registration process work?

New users can sign up for a Mundia membership by clicking on the “Become a Member” button in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. A small blue and white Facebook logo button can also be found just to the right of it for those who prefer to sign up using Facebook. The Mundia registration form requires a first and last name, email address, password, gender, country location and language. The user must also heck the terms of use and privacy policy box at the bottom of the form before submitting their information.

Mundia offers users two membership options to choose from. The first is a free membership that includes the ability to build a family tree, social tools to collaborate with family members and the ability to add photographs, stories and timelines to the user’s family tree. The premium membership option includes automatic hints, the ability to contact others to find living cousins, access to full member profiles to find common relatives and the ability to view, merge and match family trees with other Mundia members.
