What is the Geni Consistency Checker?

The consistency checker (released November 2019) constantly monitors profiles you may be interested in for common errors or other conditions that may indicate a mistake in the tree.  Inconsistencies are presented on the profile and in the tree view, as well as grouped together under the Research menu.  They can also be viewed for any relationship path that Geni displays.

See "How to Resolve Inconsistencies" for instructions on correcting the information or ignoring an inconsistency.

There are 27 types of inconsistencies that are checked:
