To download your GEDCOM file, make sure you are logged in to Geni and click the 'Family' tab and then click the 'Share Your Tree' link. When you click the button to export your GEDCOM file, we will generate your GEDCOM file and send you a link to download it.

You can export a GEDCOM file for any profile that you added. Simply click 'Actions' on their profile and select 'Export GEDCOM.'

GEDCOM is a standard file format used to save, transfer, and transport genealogical information. Exporting a GEDCOM file will allow you to save your Geni family tree to your own computer.

Then to open and read the GEDCOM file you exported from Geni, you will need an application that is able to read a GEDCOM file. As there are a number of such applications, you may even be able to locate a free one by searching online.

Note: A Forest export may take several days to complete. 

Limits:

Basic users - GEDCOM exports are limited to 4x the number of profiles you've added and up to a maximum of 5,000 profiles

Pro users - GEDCOM exports are limited to 4x the number of profiles you've added and up to a maximum of 50,000 profiles
