What is Geni?

Geni is the leading collaborative genealogy platform. Geni users from around the world work together to build a single, comprehensive family tree. Users can build a private tree of their close relatives to connect to the shared public tree.

Start by building your family tree through our fun, simple interface. It's fast and free. Invite your relatives to join Geni and add other relatives. This makes it easy to grow your tree.

As your tree grows, Geni automatically looks for matches in other family trees. You'll be notified of possible matches, growing your tree even faster. Eventually your tree will merge with the World Family Tree, which currently contains over 170 million profiles.

Everyone in the tree has a profile which shows more about them and enables other family members to stay in touch. Families can work together to build profiles for common ancestors.

Geni will not share your personal information with third parties. We will not sell your email address or spam you. Users control which communications they would like to receive from us.

In November 2012, Geni was acquired by MyHeritage Ltd. and is now a MyHeritage company.
