Welcome to the Geni research volunteers project

Please feel free to apply to join this project, and/or follow the project.

If you have research interests and abilities and like helping others on Geni, this is the project for you.

The purpose of this project is to provide a central location for Geni users to list the areas of the world family tree where they have particular expertise, knowledge, research interests or capabilities, or access to research materials that others may not have.

While that could be done on a Wiki page, a project format allows for discussions as well.

Participation is purely voluntary.

Capabilities can be listed by country, era, or genre. Interests may be wide or narrow.

Geni curators are currently setting up their own project at Geni Curators, listing their capabilities. The format of listing capabilities in this project is intended to mirror that of the Geni curators project.

Another sister project is Genealogy Specialists on Geni.

Users listed in this project can be Geni Basic, Plus, Pro or curator, without discrimination.

Brief listing of Geni research volunteers

Please list your name, link to your profile, and list the areas where you would like to offer research help to your fellow Geni users?

Maximum two lines per person please. Free text. We may formalise a structure later. Start a project discussion thread if you want to write more.
