New Features – Four New Tree Views

Posted May 16, 2007 by Geni | No Comment

In addition to the original ‘Tree’ and ‘List’ views we have now added four new ways to view the information in family tree:

Calendar – The Family Calendar lists all of your family’s upcoming birthdays and anniversaries.  We also tell you how old the person will be on their next birthday and for anniversaries we tell you which anniversary it
is (bronze, silver, gold, etc.).

– (UPDATE: The Map feature has been temporarily disabled due to a technical issue.  We hope to have it back up in the near future.  When the Map is live again this post will be updated).  We are excited to announce the release of one of our most requested features, the Family Map!  You can view all of your family’s Current Residences and Birth Places on a global map.  We use the Google Maps interface so zooming and navigating around your Family Map is easy.  You can also choose who you want to see on the map – You, Living Relatives, Deceased Relatives, In-laws, Friends.

Index – Another widely requested feature request has been an index of family names in your tree.  Simply click on the ‘Index’ link to view a Index of Last Names.  The Index lists every last name that exists in your tree as well as the number of people with that last name and a link to view them.

– Now there is a Tree Discussion Board that will allow you to communicate with anyone on your tree.  Messages you leave here can be read and replied to by anyone on your tree.  Communication with your family has never been easier!
