Geni, the online genealogy and social
networking site run by ex-PayPal cofounder David Sacks, has rolled out
two new features. According to the firm in an announcement to users
Friday, it has added popular holidays to its calendar, and also added
new virtual gifts for those holidays which can be sent to family. In
addition, the company said it has enhanced its Geni Pro service, the
firm's subscription version of its service, to provide better
information about blood relations; exports of a family tree to the
industry standard GEDCOM format; priority support; and an ability to
show a "Geni Pro" badge on profiles in a family tree. The firm said
that its Geni Pro version is available for less than $5 a month.
