Do you have famous relatives?

Posted August 20, 2010 by Geni | No Comment

August is free relationship path month here at Geni. This means that you can find relationship paths to very distant relatives. If you are part of our big tree, there is a good chance that you have some famous relatives. Here’s three easy steps to find your famous relatives:


  1. Go to our list of popular profiles
  2. Click on the name of a profile you find interesting (I’m going to see if I’m related to Steve Martin)
  3. Click the “How are you related?” button on the top of their profile

We’ll start looking for a relationship path to them. You can go back to the popular profiles page and look for more famous relatives while we look for a path. If we find a relationship (it may take a few minutes), you’ll see a notification at the top of the page.

Click to view a full page view of your relationship to your famous relative. Use the links at the bottom to let your friends on twitter and facebook know about your new relative. They’ll see a page just like this one:

Note that you will only see the “How are you related?” button if you are connected to the profile you are viewing. If you are not yet part of the big tree, you can look for possible connections in your Merge Center.

Find your famous relatives.
