Why RTree

Hi I am Jim Dowdell, Founder of RTree

As a husband for 43 wonderful years, a father of five incredible children, and a proud grandfather of eight, I’ve come to realize the profound importance of family stories. Our journey together, the laughter, the challenges, and the shared moments – they all form the fabric of our unique family legacy.

As parents and grandparent you can relate

RTree is more than an app; it’s my passion to preserve these invaluable stories. Imagine a place where our family memories aren’t scattered across devices and social media but beautifully organized in an interactive family tree. RTree is born out of the desire to create that space, a private and secure sanctuary for our cherished moments.

This isn’t just about technology; it’s about strengthening family bonds. RTree is my commitment to ensuring that our stories, experiences, and the essence of who we are as a family endure for generations to come. It’s a celebration of love, resilience, and the beauty that unfolds in the everyday moments we share.

With RTree, I invite you to join me on this heartfelt journey to build lasting legacies, connect generations, and embrace the power of our family stories.

Warm regards,
