We're excited to announce that Geni is now a part of the MyHeritage team. We want you to know Geni will remain the same, but with some great enhancements for our entire community. Read the announcement on our blog.

Enhancements:

  • No more tree limits - all users can now add unlimited profiles for free!
  • Merging is now free - all users can now merge duplicate profiles in their tree (privacy and permission rules still apply)
  • Relationship paths are now free
  • Free family tree chart downloads are now available. All users can now download high quality charts of their family tree
  • No more ads for a cleaner and friendlier experience on Geni

Fixes:

  • Fixed broken Facebook photos
  • Fixed hovercards in search and the Merge Center
  • Fixed display of long names in the immediate family module on profiles
  • Fixed the relationship tab in the tree view which wasn't loading
  • Fixed pagination on revision pages

Two questions:

1) I have been using Geni.com for several years. I just discovered that a relative has been using MyHeritage longer and has build a bigger family tree there. Our trees overlap a lot. Can we make our trees between myheritage.se and geni.com to synchronize?

2) Does it matter if I continue to use myheritage.se or geni.com? Will they become the same database?

Hi Michael,

Merges are free for everyone. Please keep in mind tree matches are still a Pro feature. Here's our FAQ on how to merge http://help.geni.com/entries/469660-how-can-i-merge-my-tree-with-a-...

You can also add unlimited profiles, view relationship paths and download family tree charts for free.

not to mention, anytime I try to access any of the features promised to us for free, I keep getting redirected to the membership upgrade page which costs money that I cannot afford at this time.
