Five best family websites

Family is an important part of most people’s lives.

Family is an important part of most people’s lives and come in all shapes and sizes. This can bring much joy, but also a few bumps along the way. These five websites will help you manage your mob.

Your own family website
Keeping in touch with family members can be tricky, especially when they are spread all over the country, or even the world. You can create your own website for free, upload photos, messages and the latest family news for all members to access.

Family health tree
Tracing your family history can be fun, but it’s also important to help you uncover the genetic health make-up of previous generations. Try this guide if you’re unsure where to start or what to include.

Managing relationship angst
Relationship woes come in all guises; it can be mother against daughter, son against in-laws, or brother against sister. Sometimes a third-party mediator is required to help work things out.

Family assistance
A new addition to the family can be a drain on already strained finances, whether your own or those of your immediate family. If you become principal carer for a grandchild, or just want to know what assistance is available, then your first port of call should be the Department of Human Services.

Life stages
Different life stages can impact differently on individuals and families. The Australian Institute of Family Studies publishes two issues of FamilyMatters each financial year which you can download for free, or subscribe if you would like a printed version.
