      Geni is a family-tree-making service that's free and incredibly easy to use. It also has a straightforward way to invite other family members in the hopes that they'll put in their own data. The actual data entry is a snap, because when you're first building the tree, the only data you have to actually type for each person is their name. Relationships are encoded by clicks of the mouse, and you can fill in other data (birthdates, whether the person is alive or not, and so forth) later.

      You can enter e-mail addresses when you're doing your quick first pass, and Geni will then (with your permission) invite these people to contribute to the family tree with info you don't have. The system is easy enough to use that we would not have qualms about inviting non-tech-savvy relatives. It's the best thing we've seen for people who just want an easy way to record their family tree
