    I always enjoy the artwork on Geni. They don’t just use clipart or the same rehashed, recycled-looking imagery we see every year on the rest of the web. Keep up the great work, Geni!

    “Interesting facts” – yes. Accurate “facts”? Not quite. Did “Titanic” really sail from Southampton to the iceberg by way of Queensland?

      Queenstown is the old name of Cobh  on the Irish South coast, this was the last port of call for the Titanic . So not Queensland , Australia.

        Thanks! Yes, it was suppose to say Queenstown, not Queensland. We’ve updated the image.

    All well and good to look pretty but maybe someone needs an atlas? Last time I looked Queensland was in Australia.

    Queenland is named after the queensland in Ireland – it was renamed after independence to cobh

      Cobh’s original name was Queenstown, not Queensland.
