Dear Geni, I work as a professional in the field of intellectual history of South Asia (India and surrounding states). Geni is a near-perfect tool for capturing some of the complexity of family relationships in pre-modern South Asia. However, entwined with family history is the very important series of relationships between teachers and pupils. Is there any way to capture this information? In a sense, one needs another layer of personal data relationships. So, blue for men, pink for women, and perhaps green for intellectual relationships.
I can imagine that geni.com would simply say "no", this is an extension of your software in a direction you feel no need to go in. But I thought I would at least raise the issue.
If geni didn't want to do this, would you be interested in the possibility of some collaboration with research groups at the university level?
