I have been advised that this function on Geni does not work well, has no tracking and does not export.

I have been advised to avoid adding events using this feature.

Until advised otherwise, it seems what could be a valuable record resource, is not.

By using the Timeline Events Tab on a profile you can see the automatic timelines created each time you fill in a records.

Event Type:

  • Births
  • Weddings

  • Burials
  • Divorces
