HistoryLink is a set of free tools for Geni that will search your tree for historical and famous ancestors. The search will compare your direct ancestors (and their siblings) to projects on Geni and list any matches found, the relation and what projects they belong to. It can also search for master profiles, problem profiles, and pending merges. HistoryLink also includes a powerful 10 generation graph visualization that is great for focusing your research and addressing the gaps in your tree. The graph will identify duplicate ancestors via color and provides options for viewing the status of the profiles, gender, and location.
