If you have two people who are related in multiple ways within the same blood tree (i.e. first cousins who are also married), we call these types of relationships "Cycles" on Geni.

To create a Cycle, please follow these steps:

  1. Click 'More' on the node you would like to connect

  1. Next, click on ‘Move this Person.’

    This will add the node to the 'MapThese People' tray, found on the side of your Tree view.

  1. Then drag the node onto the second person to whom he or she is related and select the appropriate relationship.

  2. And you're done! You will see a green x2 symbol at the bottom right corner that indicates the node is a part of a cycle. Click on it to view the node's other position in the tree.
