Our Family is Growing!

Posted December 4, 2012 by Amanda | 4 Comments

What an exciting week! Since we announced that Geni is Joining the MyHeritage Family! we’ve been overwhelmed by the warm congratulations we’ve received from the genealogy community.

Even more exciting is the response that we’ve seen from Geni users; a surge of users have visited the site to add and invite new relatives and merge their trees. We wanted to share a few metrics with you to give you an idea of how great the response has been.

These charts compare the week after the announcement with the previous week.

With all this activity, the World Family Tree should reach 66 million profiles in the next day or so!

The Geni community has also been amazing in sharing their enthusiasm for the news. We couldn’t be more thrilled! In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be adding more features to help you discover and connect with even more relatives.

Here’s what people are saying:

Have you visited your family tree recently? Go there now to add more relatives and to invite your family to help you connect to the 65 million people on Geni’s World Family Tree!

    Congratulations for the idea of merging with myheritage. years ago I tried them and they were OK but to expensife. What about my profiles here and there, will they be merged too?

    I congratulate geni and myheritage for reversing the fall ’11 debacle that chided longtime and valuable contributors. I would like to see the statistics of stagnation on the site following those poor decisions. All I could really track was the overall number of profiles on the site, which did not grow nearly as quickly over the past year as it was before.

    Replacing the subscriptions of lifetime members with 5-year memberships, even if it includes a MyHeritage data subscription (that nobody asked for) is not a very good way to treat loyal subscribers.
