Objective of this project…
To create the LARGEST collection of profiles from people that made an impression when we were… 16
We Geni users were not all 16 at the same time or in the same part of the world. At different times and different places, growing up from kid to young adult, we were impressed by the new things happening in our world. Some things really influenced the way we became: a song, a book, the news of the day, a friend, a parent…
Be personal but don't be too personal :-)
The idea behind this project is build a huge collection of Geni profiles of people that had some impact on us when we were 16.
It will bring alive the profiles on Geni – ‘great and small’ – that have some special meaning for each of us.
Please join and spread the word!
