Great news. Writing to Geni is coming next week! We'll send out an email with all the details. It will be a little rough around the edges, but I am sure you can handle that.

This will be a small, very specific test for next week until the 1st of February or so. We have added a TON of new formats. We want to ensure our reading and writing is working great. So here's what we'll happen.

-You will be limited to 4 generations direct ancestors. For the test we only want your main tree to be affected so we can work out any "issues."
-You will not be able to load in an existing genealogy file YET. Instead you will download your 4 generations from Geni to whatever format you want. Whatever changes you make to the created file(s) (and once you hit sync, the auto-sync will come after the test) will be pushed back to Geni, but only within those 4 generations. We want you to try out every genealogy program you have any every field in those programs to ensure things pass properly.

After this quick test we'll then open up the generations. We have a long way we can go with this, and it's been a LONG time coming. Thank you for all your patience.

To help you get see what we've been up to, here's a list of all of our currently supported genealogy programs:

I can't WAIT to get this into your hands...

When you say changes to the local file ...

Will that include download of media (e.g: pictures), and then either:

1) upload a new profile picture in place of the previous one?


2) upload a profile picture where none existed previously on

Dan Cornett If you change the main profile picture in your desktop it will replace it up on Geni. If you add a media item to a person on the desktop it will add it to Geni. :)
