Start My Family Tree Welcome to Geni, home of the world's largest family tree.
Join Geni to explore your genealogy and family history in the World's Largest Family Tree.


Hello! My name is Michael Ragonesi! I made this as a written version of the Geni world family tree. I want to try and piece everyone's trees together. i will have a big list of documents on the documents page everytime we piece someone's tree together that shows the descendants/ancestors of the two people we pieced together. ANYONE feel free o help and build a HUGE family tree. Also, you may add photos, documents, and videos as you wish as long as they are not inappropriate.


  • No Vulgar language
  • No Spamming/taking over the discussions
  • No Advertising (sharing links that are helpful and not advertising products is allowed)
  • No attacks against someone's race, religion, gender, or political view (everyone is allowed!)
  • No making fun of other websites
  • Respect Everyone (The chat is not only about you)
  • Do not annoy other people (Respect their opinions, ideas, points of view, or information)
  • Do not reveal your or other people's personal information without permission. This could result in stalking or harassment.
  • No threats (suicide, self harm, physical harm)
  • Report to me any inappropriate posts or images/discussions
  • No inappropriate documents

Things you should do:

  • Add documents relevant to discussions
  • Add appropriate pictures/videos/discussions
  • Ask questions about brick walls/connecting two trees
  • Check open discussions before creating your own, your question might have been answered before.
  • Ignore bothersome members of the group. Do not get agitated or angry.
  • Report posts that violate the rules
  • Don't be afraid to share
  • Welcome new members
  • Use descriptive titles for a new discussion. Avoid "generic" post subjects like "Help" or "Question". You will receive a better response to your posts by making your title more descriptive about the content of your post.
  • Try to stay on topic, if the discussion starts to get off topic, create a new one.
  • Keep posts family friendly

Also, please do not stop people from doing what they love. In the discussion, someone sent me a very hurtful message basically saying what I am doing is useless. He has posted it on multiple discussions of mine on other projects. I have reported him. Please do not do this because I know firsthand that is very rude and hurtful.

Thanks! Michael
