Geni: Build Your Family Tree
« on: January 17, 2007, 06:31:38 AM »
Unique software that helps you build your family tree.

Getting Started
What is Geni?
Geni is a website that allows families to collaboratively build their family tree. Family members can then use the tree to learn more about each other, share knowledge about common ancestors and relatives, and stay in touch with each other. To learn more see about us. Signup & Invitations
How do I sign up for Geni?
Just start creating your tree. We will email you a temporary password. When you login for the first time, you will be prompted to create a permanent password.

If you were invited to join an existing tree, your temporary password was in the invitation. Just login to set a permanent password. You can always have your password resent to you by clicking the link on the login page.

Who can I invite to Geni?
At this time you can only invite family to Geni. Just add them to your tree.

Looks like this would be very nifty indeed!

If only it would send me my temporary password. . .

I would suggest reading all the comments on that thread over at TechCrunch before getting too excited about the site. Seems like a lot of potential for abuse.

It is said that ones of simple and unaware demeanor rapidly advance to the interior where a celestial host is intimidated to take a stroll.  Matt, I'll take that advice.
