How To: Add Your Genealogy Videos to Geni

Posted February 3, 2011 by Geni | One Comment

Oral history and interviews are a huge part of genealogy. We here at Geni feel it’s important to share this with your whole tree, so we have a video sharing feature built right into our site. Here’s how to use it.

First of all, go to the “More” menu and select “Videos.”

In the right hand side, click the green “Add Video” button.

Click the “Choose File” button, and then select the video file you’d like to upload. When you’re done, click the “Upload Video” button.

Your video will then be uploaded to the Geni servers. When it’s done, you’ll be presented with a screen that lets you edit your video’s information. Add the title, write a description, and tag the involved profiles. When you’re done, click the “Save Information” button.

Done! Your video is now available for you to share with your family.
