We are not alone when our family stands behind us.


My Family Signature is a graphic code readable by both humans and computers that identifies individuals using their unique family history.


As a society, we use documents like birth certificates, marriage contracts and wills to prove our existence and connect us with our families. This new pattern system enables individuals to review their family history and their own position within it via a personal stamp, which also acts as a key that opens their profile, family tree and important documents held in the database.
