New Features – Share Your Tree
Many of our users have asked for additional ways to share their Geni Tree with others. In addition
to printing your tree and inviting your relatives to join your tree,
there are now three new ways you can share your tree:
GEDCOM Export: You can export your tree as a GEDCOM file. GEDCOM is a standard file format used to save, transfer, and transport genealogical information. Exporting a GEDCOM file will allow you to save your Geni family tree to your own computer.
Email your tree:
You can now email a link to view a limited read-only version of your
tree. This is a limited view of your tree to protect the privacy of
others in your tree.
Embed your tree:
Similar to emailing your tree, you can now embed a limited read-only
view of your tree on your blog, social networking profile (e.g.
Facebook, MySpace), or your own website. There are a number of ways you
can customize your shared tree, although restrictions apply to protect
the privacy of others in your tree.
What we guarantee:
- Your shared tree cannot be edited by anyone.
- Other branches of your tree are not accessible.
- Only publicly viewable profile photos are shown.
- Additional profile information is not shown.
- Last names are not shown unless you choose to display them for deceased direct ancestors (starting with your grandparents).
- Minors are not shown unless you choose to show your own children.
- You can deactivate your shared tree at any time.
