Hey, just wondering if you guys put only blood relatives in your tree or do you put spouses aswell?, if yes do you also put the spouses family in or not?

Everything, and remember that you can invite people you add to continue building their part of the tree.

If you have good information, put it in. Someone else may need the info that you have!

I've put all the spouses in my tree as well, but none off their family. I only put in the names of my parents-in-law and my sisters' parents-in-law. I don't know the rest.

If you ask them if they want to join Geni you can invite them and let them build their part of the tree.

Just a reminder to make sure that you keep those profiles as 'Private' if they are in recent generations. Then they are only viewable by your 'Family' group.

Also, some parents/cousins prefer to have their children identified as 'Living' for safety concerns. If the parents join (claim their account) then they can choose to edit the names themselves.
