What is a Claimed Historical Profile?

posted this on September 23, 2011, 2:06 PM

A profile is considered a Claimed Historical Profile when a user creates an account as a deceased person.

Example: a user creates an account as President George Washington (1732-1799)

If Geni determines you have claimed a historical profile, the account will be unclaimed and subject to deletion.
