Search Box

You can search for a person using the search box on the top right corner of the Geni interface:

When you start typing a name we will provide you with a list of possible matches (this uses our standard People Tagger to look for matches). Selecting a match will take you directly to that person's profile. If you don't see the name in the list provided, click 'Go' to see the full list of results.

Search Results

Search results are now divided between profiles “Connected to You” and “Not Connected to You”.

  • “Connected to You” - These profiles are in trees directly or indirectly connected

to your tree. Use the “Search In:” menu to filter these results by blood tree.

  • “Not Connected to You” - These profiles are in other Geni trees. You can use it to search for relatives in other trees and then seek to merge those trees.


You may continue to search by specific Trees as well. To search elsewhere use the 'Search In:' Tree Selector:

  • Specific Trees - This will search every profile in a specific Tree. You can search through any Tree in your Forest.

Search Privacy

You control the search privacy of your profile and every unclaimed profile you have added to Geni. For more information see our Search Privacy page.
