Compliments on Geni, this is a very good tool and my tree has exploded with relations. It is fantastic to see the trees develop.


We love Geni and it certainly has brought my family together in ways I never thought possible. We have discovered family members that we didn’t know existed and have had fun getting to know them after all these years. It’s quite incredible!

Patrick, Geni User

I'm really enjoying using Geni. It's amazing how much my tree has grown and all of the relatives that we've gotten in touch with. Thanks.


I absolutely love Geni. It is easy to move around the site and so much information is accessible to you when searching for a cousin, aunt, 2nd cousin, etc. Accolades to you. Most fascinating what one learns about their ancestors while perusing your finely tuned genealogy program.


I love your web site though – I have been using it for approximately two years and just wish I had more time to devote to it!
