How mechmedia started their logo design journey

Overview

FamilyTreeCircles is a website for people researching their family tree to post journals and notes about their own research in order to collaborate with others researching the same family names.

FTC has a message board feel where people post their journals, which can be research notes, a question, a query for help, or even hints and tips. Other members may comment on their posts.

The name "FamilyTreeCircles" comes from the idea that there are groups of people who are researching the same family names.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The typical user of FamilyTreeCircles is anyone doing family and genealogy research about their ancestors. Generally these people are looking for information that others may have or are sharing for the benefit of others.

Requirements

I'm looking for a new logo for this website. The design of the website is also in flux, and a good logo will help drive the design and color scheme for the rest of the website.

I'm looking for something simple that will convey the name and concept behind the website.

The winning logo will look best go on a clean open website with a white-background.

I'd like a the name of the website, FamilyTreeCircles to be included in the logo along with a graphic that can preferably stand-alone as a branding element and as a favicon.

Some keywords and concept that a logo might represent:

Collaboration
Community
Family History
Connecting

You can view the site live at http://www.familytreecircles.com and I will attach a screenshot. The current color scheme is not required.

UPDATE: After looking at several days of logo submissions, I'm pretty convinced that the design needs to have a tree in it. It can be abstract, but "family tree" is a pretty important component to the brand. So the winning design will almost certainly have a tree in it. (Unless someone comes up with some completely new and awesome idea that I haven't thought of, but that doesn't seem to be happening so far.)
