Every user in the tree has the ability to add an advanced image gallery, and share the uploaded images with other family members.

With the "find relation" tool, you can quickly find the relationship between any two members of your family tree.

The "What's New" page gives you instant access to the most recently added records.

A password reminder feature is available in case a family member wishes to request access to the family tree. Upon submission, an email is sent to tree administrator, who can then determine whether to grant the user access.

When creating individuals in the family tree, many options are available for storing personal information.

Several levels of password access exist for your family tree, including a "read-only" permission level, so that your guests can view the tree but not modify information.

Several configuration options exist in a config.php file, which allow you to customize some aspects of the display and behavior of TUFaT.

Privacy controls allow you to hide information about any family member, and select which items should be hidden.

The tree administrator can add new logins for your tree, and choose the type of login (read-only, etc.)

Add additional langauges to your tree, and edit any existing language file.
