Geni’s goal is to create one huge family tree, which it calls the World Family Tree, with a profile of every person who’s ever lived—more than 80 million to date. To that end, the site lets you and your relatives collaborate to build a family tree online, merge relatives from other trees into yours, and eventually connect to the World Family Tree. Geni members collaborating on a tree can be part of a discussion forum that serves as a family news digest, and they can be notified when new people or photos are added.
Here’s how to get the most out of Geni.com:
n Get automated matches. Geni automatically looks for matches in other trees and notifies you of possible matches. If it finds connections between another tree and yours, you can merge the duplicate profiles.
