Anyone can Add a Family. When you Add a Family, you become the Family Connector. 

What is a Family?

A Family is any group of people invited by the Family Connector to join a Kinscape Family.  Family can be actual kin (people with common ancestry), relatives, friends or acquaintances. Upon acceptance of the invitation, the invitee becomes a Family Member. Family Members can Create, Share, Contribute to, and Comment on Stories.
