Now that I’ve got my sea legs here at Geni, and since I’ve told you all what I do, I think it’s important to explain a little bit about why I care so much about Geni and the genealogy community. I am deeply vested in Geni succeeding well into the future, and that’s why I’m here.

I want Geni to grow and get better because I am a user, and I’ve been one long before working here was ever an option. Geni is an everyday thing for me, and I want to do everything I can to make it better. That means listening to current users, reaching out to new ones, and making some kick-butt content.

What I’ve found that I like the most about working at Geni is the sincere desire the entire team has for making the best family tree tool. We all want to make a wonderful user experience for everyone. Some problems are harder to solve than others, but I’m seeing first hand how hard everyone is working on making Geni better than the rest.

Any questions, comments, or suggestions are very much welcome. You’ll be heard more now than ever before. Let me know what you like and what you don’t. Tell your friends — we’re taking it to the next level. Users are the most important thing to us.

    The thing I have liked the most over the long haul is the layout of the tree, and the ease of input of my information. It is user friendly.nnThe greatest advancement Geni has made since I started is the ability for people to merge the trees together! This allows the users to greatly reduce duplicate research! While you are not the only site that has this ability, it makes you MUCH more competitive!
