Suppose I can see all 16 matches that I have for one profile ?
What else is possible ?

Hi Annemarie,

You can see the Pro benefits at (in my opinion the best view is the pop-up box of checkmarks when you click the link labeled "view all features"). In short, the benefits are:

Tree Matches
Advanced Search
Forest GEDCOM Exports
No Banner Ads
Priority Support
Unlimited Virtual Gifts
Expanded tree view (limit 5,000 profiles instead of 1,000)

I asked once on the official Geni Facebook if you can do pay-by-month instead of paying for the year in full up front, but I never got a response. Anyone know? The way it's set up, it looks like that's not offered, and I'm not going to put in credit card info to find out after the fact.

They had it in the beginning, but my personal experience was that you got more in transaction fee than the cost.

Try to compare with other costs. Drop one Caffè latte or similar per week and you have covered your cost.

I find it very reasonable less then 1 Euro or just over 1 dollar per week, it is better then and more fun .

Yes, it does seem like a lot of fun. Unfortunately, not everyone's finances allow for larger upfront expenditures. Smaller amounts at a time work better for my limited budget. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a monthly option to come back soon. :)
