I was given the opportunity to review this website.  We get it free for a year!   From what I've seen so far I really like it.  Here is the description of the website.  My review is toward the bottom. Product Description:

AboutOne is an online family information management system;
ONE place, accessible anytime, anywhere, from any device, (you don’t have to be at home, and you don’t have to be on your own computer) where in just seconds busy moms can store, secure, and manage household information, including health records, possession details, education records, contacts, and family memories – both text and pictures.

AboutOne stores the information with bank-level security. Then, the system automatically uses the information you’ve entered to save you time on family administrative chores like completing school forms, college apps, caregiver instructions, and tax returns, creating family newsletters and scrapbooks, and automatically creating and mailing holiday cards (coming Dec 1). The information is also available, at your fingertips, to make informed decisions and respond quickly to an emergency. (Also coming soon is the ability to automatically create hardcover photo memory books from the memories and stories you’ve entered in AboutOne.)

This short video gives a good overview of what one customer loves about our service:

Joanne Lang, AboutOne’s founder and CEO (and mom of 4 boys under the age of 6), is a former software company executive. She’d seen how cloud-based computing allowed businesses to gain new levels of efficiency and wanted to bring these same benefits to moms and families.

In this short video overview, Joanne shows how fast and easy it is to enter information in AboutOne:

These are a few of the features that make truly unique:
· It is One highly secure place, online, to store household information and family memories – no more worries about losing important paperwork or losing data, pictures and contact information because your computer crashed. Also, no need to worry about backing up your data – AboutOne does that for you.

I wish I had a bit longer to review this before I had to post a review.  BUT from what I was able to play around with I really liked it.  It took a bit to input all the information so I was able to use the different features.  As you input information it is saved so you can make a newsletter.  I thought that was pretty neat.  Although, I'm really cautious about personal stuff I like that I can have all the stuff in one location.  I look forward to using this more in the upcoming year.  It a family manager in one site!  Medical, educational, your home information and so much more.  Like I said I did not have enough time to go through every feature.

Here is the pricing info....
