Tracing Your Roots

GeniInterested in genealogy?

Geni is a web-based application with a simple interface that allows you to build your family tree and invite others to contribute. Relatives who are added to your tree can sign up for an account and add more family members. The basic tools are free, although you have the option of paying for a pro plan with advanced features. Geni keeps your information private so only the people in your family can log in and see your tree.

Geni was highlighted on Time magazine’s list of the 50 Best Websites of 2008 and on PC magazine’s list of the Best Free Software of 2009.
