New Features – Directory of Family Names on Geni
We recently announced that our
users have created 10 Million profiles on Geni. With our growing index
of names we continue to work hard at providing you the tools you need
to find and connect with your family.
Many of you already use
our public search feature to find family members in other trees and
genealogists researching a shared surname. To increase the value of
this feature, we will be indexing these same public search results in
Google and other search engines. We have also created a Directory of
Family Names on Geni that links to these search results. This index is
available to non-Geni users when they visit the Geni homepage. As a
Geni user, you already see these search results in the ‘Search Outside
Your Tree’ tab of your search results. Note that these public search
results may take some time to index.
You can continue to
control what information appears in your own search result (and the
search results for people you add) in your account settings.
