I'm looking for free, online, collaborative genealogy software.

I'd like to build out my family tree, which currently exists in various family members' heads. What I'd like is a site that I can plug in as much info as I can, and have it notify anyone I tag with an email address. They, in turn, can create an account and update accordingly.
There are decent stand-alone tools, but a self-perpetuating, collaborative effort appeals to me, and my family is fairly wired. I know there are online collaborative sites, but I (a) vehemently dislike any kind of "subscription" model, and (b) not interested in relying on/sharing with the public-at-large. An invitation-based system seems more likely to generate useful information.
Does such a tool exist?
