When I opening this page I have an error, do you?

P.S. I need to export all my family emails to use it for Facebook invitations.

OK, as I said here,, most people hide their email anyhow, and Geni have probably disabled that page without redirecting to a Page not found.

Michelle Elena Kempner, Mike Stangel?

Bjorn - are you basing your statement, "most people hide their email anyhow" on what you see on your Family Group? Or, as Curator, are you able to see such info on other folks' Profiles as well, or??

I just checked - using lists - my family group, and of the 44 claimed profiles, only the one deceased fails to show an e-mail address. So perhaps it is not as common to hide it as you think? Or ??

The most common security advice is to hide your email if possible, unless you have a very good spamfilter, and I assumed that most people followed that advice.

I keep all my contact info on Geni open, mostly because as a curator it should be easy to contact me.

you can hide it for public but open for family. Any way, that's me puting most of my tree's email to the system in order to invite all my relatives, so why should't I be able to see it after thet?

@Michelle Kempner,
do you have any update on this issue, already?

The address book feature was removed some time ago and you are getting the error by going to the old URL directly. We are going to fix the bug so that the page no longer returns an error, but I don't think we are bringing back the address book.

Is any way to download or see all my family emails?

Yes, using the API....
I'll check it out next week.

Thanks @Bjon, please post results here
